Could coffee with almond or hemp milk be making me react???

Well, if your gut is inflamed, the coffee might be temporarily bothering you.  It is pretty acidic.  My Grandma said you should never drink tea alone.  She recommended eating a cracker or cookie (maybe that is just a British thing....).  Was there anything else in your stomach to offset the acid?  Also, both of those "milks" usually contain that seaweed stuff (carrageenan) or a gum.  Those might be bothering you.  Xanthan gum still bothers me!  Look for brands that do not add additional thickeners.  Is dairy out for you?  Lactose free milk might be good.  Again watch for additives!  

Hang in there!  ?

Carrageenan bothers me a lot.  It is very often added to almond milk, coconut milk, etc.  So it could be that.  I drink mine with half and half and do fine.  Others add coconut cream.  Both might be worth trying.
