Given that it doesn't give any digestion problems, how about drinking Lactaid (100% lactose free) milk to get some calories? I am consistently losing weight (and strength) and I want to get back my PRs and gain some weight..

Some people have trouble not with the lactose, the sugar in milk, but casein, the protein in milk. Casein has a molecular structure that is quite similar to that of gluten. For some people, me included, casein causes just as many problems as gluten. You'd have to assess if any trouble you've had with dairy were caused by the lactose or by the casein.

Lactaid is not organic. Organic milk is better than the regular stuff. I think the Organic Valley brand is probably best. If you don't have serious issues with lactose I don't think it would be necessary to get lactose-free dairy but there are lactase pills which can help if you do.
edit: I googled and apparently Lactaid has an organic brand but I don't think I've ever seen it....

That is a highly processed industrial food. I would not consume it!
If you can get grass-fed raw dairy, I'd try that instead. Based on your other posts though, I'd stay away from dairy until I figured out what's causing your bloating, anorexia and lack of energy. That's really got to be impairing your quality of life.
