    Probably. Don't forget that if your body can still produce some lactase enzyme, then you can tolerate some lactose. It's all about quantity consumed at a sitting.

    So you would probably be OK with some cheese and not get symptoms.

    Switch to lactose-free milk. Milk is usually the main culprit.

    Could be, next will be the bloating and such. I used to drink 16oz of milk with all three meals, loved all sorts of different cheeses, A little fruit, meat, and cheese. Eggs a couple of times a week. Dairy was a major part of my diet. Then it wasn't, all of a sudden i had some issue. Had to change everything, developed a serious issue with all dairy, as well as many other foods.  In the scheme of things, it was a very short time, the process from when it started until the docs were done with me was about 6 months.

    See what happens if you avoid taking in lactose. If it goes away try diary again and see what happens. If your diarrrea comes back talk to your doctor and see what he/she says.

    Very likely, check with your doc. He can test you to make sure.
