I really do not think that you are lactose intolerant. The nausea after a cup of coffee, might be due to gastric irritation. I therefore, suggest that you consult your doctor for an examination and a possible gastroscopy. Your doctor can also do blood tests to evaluate if you are lactose intolerant.

Please however, also note that you might merely experience heartburn.

Regards
