It could be. I wouldn't go off a reaction just based on one time. Wait another few weeks and then eat a SMALL amount. Make sure everything you eat up to a few days before is not questionable. I get stomach cramps (like I'm ovulating) for about a week with dairy and bms get messed up too. Ends with a migraine. Physically, dairy is worse for me than gluten.

I am also dairy-intolerant, along with many other things. I have been doing this for almost 4 yrs now. After I got my "diet" under control for quite awhile, I can do a LITTLE BIT of dairy once in awhile. Of course, when I get away with it once, it's so much harder for me to stay away from it so I often overdo by having a little bit more and then it takes quite awhile to get things under control again. I have much of the same symptoms you do. I have noticed that with cheeses, cheddar and hard cheeses are not ones I can ever get away with. I do better with the soft, more expensive types....brie, etc. I also do ok with lowfat mozzarella. But, like I said, only once in a blue moon and not much then.

Separate casein from lactose. Have either hard cheese, or milk --not both.

What jestgar said - your symptoms overlap with lactose intolerance (bloating, pain (possibly from bloating), and D). You need to single them out to determine if it's casein or lactose.

I find that too much casein gives me headaches and constipation. But everyone's symptoms vary.
