I have been having awful stomach cramps and gas after most meals for the last week!

I have lots of experience with this, and you have a good doctor to have raised the possibility!

I was just researching this this morning! lol

I have been having some stomach issues for a couple weeks now. It's definitely getting old. My OB suggested going off my MVI for a week to see if that helped. So far it hasn't. I'm starting to suspect a lactose intolerance. I've never had it before and I'm hoping this isn't the case. I love my cereal in the morning!

You can still have your cereal - you just need the enzyme (which is in lactaid) (or to use something like rice milk).

I'll have to ask my OB about lactaid. Thanks for the info!
