A condition known as lactose intolerance is characterized by painful abdominal cramping,

 A condition known as lactose intolerance is characterized by painful abdominal cramping, gas, and diarrhea. The cause of the problem is an inability to digest the milk sugar, lactose. How would this cause the observed symptoms? Why is yogurt less likely to trigger the symptoms?

128) Erica came down with the flu. She experienced severe vomiting, determined to be primarily stomach contents, for three days, and now is having chest pains. She is calling one of her symptoms "heartburn," but reported that it felt as if she had swallowed a small apple whole. Certain that she was having a heart attack, Erica rushed to the doctor. The doctor took her history and symptoms, and reassured her that she only had esophagitis. How did the physician conclude this? Is her blood pH higher or lower than normal?

129) Eric has had trouble sleeping the last two nights and is currently experiencing heart burn which he attributes to the stress of being in finals week and eating too much pizza. His lab partner in Physiology class tells him he should take some diphenhydramine (Benadryl) before he goes to bed because that will help him sleep and his upset stomach. Is this a good suggestion or not.
