I went paleo, I eventually put 2 + 2 together and realised that I was intolerant to milk. I used to drink a pint every few days pre-paleo but when I changed, even a splash in my coffee would have my stomach make the weirdest noises, I'd have gas and diarrhea. I then went off milk completely and I don't get this any more. However, I could always eat cheese and it never gave me a reaction.
I recently went about a week or so off cheese and now I'm noticing that after each slice of cheese now, I have a small bit of gas and in large amounts, some discomfort. It's charleville soft cheese, that comes in slices.
Is it normal to develop an intolerance slowly over time? Do you think it's the cheese or something else?

It sounds like you are lactose intolerant. Soft cheese has more lactose in it than hard cheese. Have you tried eating cheddar?
