I now have to wait for this test as going by symptoms on internet i really could be lactose intolerant. this could be after two bouts of camplyobacter in 2 years which i think had wrecked my gut flors and gut generally.

I have to find out soon as i feel really ill and tired with tis, whatever it is.
Maybe you have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Maybe do some research about it and see if your GI doctor can do a hydrogen breath test for bacterial overgrowth - I believe it is a separate test from the one to test for lactose intolerance. Antibiotic therapy and dietary changes are a must to keep it under control. MaryAnn
