Pooping regularly but feel backed up. Had a bm this morning containing corn from a meal I ate on monday night. Lots of gas in intestines.

Pooping regularly but feel backed up. Had a bm this morning containing corn from a meal I ate on monday night. Lots of gas in intestines.

OK: As long as you are regular, that is good. Increase your fluids in your diet and fiber and that can help improve your "backed up" feeling. Fiber is good for bowel stability, but too much may constipate you as well. Play detective and learn the foods that back you up, then only ea them in moderation. Always stay well hydrated and that will help bowel regularity. Best wishes. ...Read more

My stool is constantly hard and bloody. I poop at least 3 times a day. There is lots of pressure when pooping. After I have a lot of gas. What is this?

My stool is constantly hard and bloody. I poop at least 3 times a day. There is lots of pressure when pooping. After I have a lot of gas. What is this?

Constipation...: If you're young and otherwise healthy, it sounds like you're constipated - which can bring on hemorrhoids and bleeding. If, after increasing your fruits and veggies, water intake, and fiber, you're still constipated, make sure you see your doctor to get a check. They'd want to rule out more serious causes of blood in the stool like masses (tumors or growths) in the colon or rectum. ...Read more

Constipated: Your thin stools may in fact be paradoxical diarrhea where stool is passing around your blockage. Start with enemas to clear your bowels, afterward change your diet by reducing milk and milk products. Increase your fruits and vegetables along with nuts, raisins, prunes, figs and dates. If diet change doesn't help take MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) as directed on the bottle. ...Read more

My one month old seems to have painful gas. She cries at times when trying to poop/ pass gas. She also spits up a lot. Is this a concern?

Pretty common: This sounds like an average 1 month old. If the kid feeds well most of the time and is filling out, it's probably nothing significant. If the feeding is off and baby seems uncomfortable most of the time, it would be worth a visit to rule out some issues. ...Read more

Gas needs to go: Hello Neeraj,

You are having urgency of bowel because you are taking stimulants. The bowel fells stretched from the gas and tells you that you need to evacuate this gas. The bowel is really responding normally therefore you have to stop taking preparations that increase bowel motility and gas build up. ...Read more

Mucous stringy poop. Clear mucous with brown coloured areas all over. Also lots of gas and some abdominal pains. Ibs?

Mucous stringy poop. Clear mucous with brown coloured areas all over. Also lots of gas and some abdominal pains. Ibs?

Good possiblity but: Mucus discharge occurs in up to 50% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome, with or without pain. Mucus may also be produced in response to partial obstruction, chronic constipation, rectal dysfunction, infection, ; even from secretory villous tumors of the rectum. At the very least stool studies should help address if mucus white bits you're seeing are "worms" (pinworms, etc.) so rx can begin. ...Read more

Bowel/bladder urges: Go to ER for evaluation. How long today or weeks? If a few days bowel or bladder dysfunction is an emergency.

Diarrhea: You may have contracted contaminated food or perhaps having a reaction to one of ingredients you consumed. If others who had same meal are experiencing same symptoms then this is more likely. If it persists, or you have bloody stools then it would be a good idea to be evaluated and perhaps your provider might want stool sample for study. ...Read more

I have a lot of mucus in my poop and a lot of gas and bloating and it's hard to breath and my heart hurts?

Stomach makes a swooshing noise when empty. Excess bloating while/ after eating no matter the portion. Foul poop, light color, soft. Lots of gas.

Bad digestion: There are several possible considerations for maldigestion. Ibs, celiac sprue, lactose intolerance (e.g. Lactase deficiency) or other food intolerance, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth to name a few. I suggest taking a probiotic supplement to correct any imbalance in intestinal flora and dietary change to a low-fodmaps diet (ibsfree. Net). If not better, see a gastroenterologist. ...Read more

Xray of son's tummy shows lots of poop and especially large gas bubble. Going to step up miralax (polyethylene glycol). Any ideas for reducing gas? 2.5 yrs weighs 23.5lbs

Xray of son's tummy shows lots of poop and especially large gas bubble. Going to step up miralax (polyethylene glycol). Any ideas for reducing gas? 2.5 yrs weighs 23.5lbs

Miralax (polyethylene glycol) may help: If you increase the miralax (polyethylene glycol) and he starts having regular movements, the gas may subside. However, too much miralax (polyethylene glycol) may cause tummy aches. Also, see if certain foods cause him more gas. First, see if he is lactose intolerant. Take him off all milk products for 1 week to see if this decreases the gas. Also, excessive sugars from juices can cause gas, so limit these to no more than 8 ounces per day. ...Read more

I have a 7-week-old baby. She'd been pooping at least 1x day, but it has been 3 days since she pooped. She does pass gas & has wet diapers. Is it ok?

I have a 7-week-old baby. She'd been pooping at least 1x day, but it has been 3 days since she pooped. She does pass gas & has wet diapers. Is it ok?

Depends on situation: If baby is breast fed they may stool a little smear every feeding or one big crib full once a week. Breast milk is so well digested that it may not leave much behind for poo to form. If it is soft, the frequency of stooling is not important.Formula babies go more often. Your babies pattern sounds pretty normal. ...Read more
