You might have a mild case of lactose intolerance, which can cause abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, flatulence and nausea. Right now, you only have the flatulence and probably some bloating. I loved drinking milk, but at about age 35, my body didn't like it so much. If I eat too much ice cream or have a very large bowl of cereal, I get the abdominal pains, diarrhea and have even vomited from it. Fortuntately, I can still have cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese and other dairy products, I just have to make sure not to have too much. I also switched from cow's milk to lactose free milk or almond milk for my cereal (much lower in calories and sugar). The flatulence will go away once your body fully processes the lactic acid. Also, you may experience some diarrhea, but the symptoms should last less than 24 hours. In the meantime, you'll just have to stay away from others, or at the very least, warn them. In the future, cut back on milk and milk products or take an over the counter remedy like Lactaid, which will help your body process the lactose.
