Hi I have reflux, gastritis, lots of gas and intestinal rumbling followed with dark green loose stool that's foul smelling. Is this ibs? If not help!?

Not irritable bowel: Reflux isn't IBS, gastitis is inflammation of the stomach. Foul-smelling stools sometimes mean gastroenteritis or malabsorption. Sounds like it is time for a GI specialist or at least a visit to your usual physician for stool studies if the problem continues and even a gluten sensitivity panel with a later GI referral. Irritable bowel synd is a diagnosis of exclusion, although real and painful. ...Read more

Light beige stools despite all that I have ate. Started 3 months ago. Blood work shows normal. HX of gastritis. No other symptoms.

Light beige stools despite all that I have ate. Started 3 months ago. Blood work shows normal. HX of gastritis. No other symptoms.

Need stool studies: I'm not sure what "light beige" means, but I assume there was a change in stool color over the past 3 months. A stool analysis could help. Assuming the stool is solid, a fat analysis could tell you if you have a problem with fat malabsorption. Too little points to a change in your diet. Too much points to a pancreas or biliary problem. See a doctor / GI or talk to someone on HealthTap Prime. Thx. ...Read more

I've noticed that it takes me 2-3 days to go to the restroom (stool) is it normal if I have gastritis and gallstones? I feel like I am but I don't why?

Constipated?: Many people normally have a bowel movement only every 2-3 days and never have issues. If you stool is harder than usual or you strain to have a bowel movement, that's how we classify constipation (which is not normal). Constipation is not directly linked to gallstones or gastritis, but if your gastritis causes you to eat less fiber or less nutritious food, this can lead to constipation. ...Read more

Try acid blockers ; diet modification, recommended by your doctor. ...Read more
