Adult milk intolerance? Sick after eating cereal and ill after latte coffee?

I know absolutely nothing about food intolerances and allergies but I have just managed to put two things together in my diet...

Sorry for TMI, but...

After eating cereal (where I like to have a lot of milk), I am often a little bit sick. And yesterday, after having a coffee shop latte, my stomach was rumbling and I felt really out of sorts for a couple of hours.

Now I am just wondering if I might have an issue with milk? I am absolutely fine after drinking milk tea (I do love a good cuppa), but maybe in a larger quantity my body doesn't like it?? shock

You sound like me and DD we just don't seem to be able to cope with large amounts of milk. Semi skimmed in tea is okay but we mostly drink it black. An occasional skinny latte is my limit. DD like soya and nut milks I'm nut allergic so don't bother. DD had awful tummy problems after milk and with our GP s support cut it out of her diet and its solved the problem. I don't think it's that unusual.

Thanks for your reply Penfold. Is there anything else you seem to have a problem with? It really seems to have come out of nowhere so I am really surprised, but it does seem to answer a few questions! Do you find you have to cut back on cheese, yoghurt, etc too? smile
