Am I lactose intolerant?

When I drink milk in the morning, soon afterwards, I have to use the bathroom (no. 2).

It's not diarrhea though. It doesn't hurt in the stomach area or elsewhere.

However, if I drink milk in the afternoon/evening/late evening, it doesn't cause me to go to the bathroom.

When I was younger, I had lots of pain in the stomach drinking milk (e.g. eating cereal), and it made me go to the bathroom, too. I just sucked it up and I guess my body just got used to it.

Am I lactose intolerant? Or is it called something else? Just curious and thanks in advance!

Addendum: If I eat something else in the morning that is non-dairy, then I don't have to go to the bathroom right after that meal.
