What prevents Lactose intolerance?

I do not have daily bowel movements, and I’m considered to be irregular. What I don’t understand is what that means for me. Does that mean that my body is not doing something properly and that I should be doing something to go at least once a day or am I fine?
I am a black female, 32 years of age and just really started working out about a month ago.

I have uncontrollable gas. It has no pattern and it is worse if I have to urinate. Can you please offer any advice to control the gas?

Not every time, but sometimes when I eat, I start to get hiccups and then experience pain in my upper chest area. I then feel that I have a lot of mucus to spit up. I have Tourette Syndrome and I turn my head to the left a lot and have neck and face twitches. I am sometimes stressed when I am eating a meal, but not all the time.
