Could this be lactose issue?

My dd is 13 weeks and just developed horrible gas. We were just getting her (with much work on dh's part) to a point that she would sleep for some stretches at night w/o wanting to nurse the whole time, and now she can't sleep because of the gas. I mean it's really irritating, she clearly wants to stay in a state of sleep throughout the night and she literally can't. She just starts writhing around and grunting, and then the explosive gas periodically escapes. And just recently, it smells awful--not like ebf poo. It even gets trapped in the diaper; last night I changed her twice thinking she must be poop, and she wasn't. Dh and I were even looking around to see if the dog had an accident--nothing I've ever smelled from my babies.

I've tried all the routine gas remedies (mylicon, bending legs up, etc.) but they don't touch it. It seems sudden too. Not that she's been a great nurser from the beginning, but I'll keep her on one side several times to prevent a fore/hind milk issue so I don't think that's it. Could it be a lactose intolerance?
