Why Am I Pooping Acid
Is having to much acid on your poop dangerous? Been running to the toilet so many times and feels like there's acid in my poop because it burns.
IT IS NOT ACID?:
Burning while moving bowels is not due to acid and can be from hot food you consumed the day before. But if it persists get it checked
It is unlikely from acid in your poop ...Read more
Depends!: What goes in, must come out :) If your diet is particularly spicy, some of the food may remain undigested enough to cause a burning sensation around the rectum/anus when you have a bowel movement. Try adjusting what you eat. If symptoms persist/worsen or you notice blood in your stools or leakage of stool, see your doctor. Take care ...Read more
Can acid indigestion cause farts to feel physically hot? Can it also cause your poop to feel hot? I don't eat anything spicy whatsoever...
No: Flatulence containing methane gas, which results from byproducts of digestion from normal bacterial flora in the gastrointestinal tract. The temperature of the gas correlates with the body temperature, and is flammable. This is a reason why you can light a match, causing combustion utilizing the methane gas from the flatulence, which is not advisable. ...Read more

What does a darker sticky poop mean for newborn? I forgot what the GI doctor told me today. Something about more acid in stomach. Is that right?
NORMAL: The GI tract of the baby is fully formed by 12-16 weeks. The baby swallow small amounts of amniotic fluid which contains some shed hair and surface cells. Small amounts of bile is made by the liver, which adds color to the poo. Enzymes in small amounts digest this debris, but baby is not supposed to stool until after birth. Then the poo is a sticky mess. Stomach acid starts forming after birth. ...Read more

Pain in chest, throat, jaw, nape, strong bitter taste, numbing left arm, stomach ache, nausea, feeling of want to poop. Heart attack or acid reflux? Confused.
We are too!: No one symptom definitively indicates a heart attack is or is not in progress, but many people make the fatal mistake of waiting out atypical heart pain. "Heart pain" is often indistinguishable from esophageal, pericardial, mediastinal, gastric, & chest wall distress. However, don't ignore chest pain--get evaluated ASAP. ...Read more

Proctocolitis?: Acid reflux has nothing to do with this. Sounds like rectal or colon inflammation (proctocolitis).

If you're gay and have had anal sex, STDs are possible. See your doctor or a gastroenterologist soon. ...Read more

Diet: Well, nobody's flatus smells like rose petals, but if yours is particularly foul-smelling, that may be due to onions or garlic in diet. Milk can cause excessive flatus in people with lactase deficiency. If all else fails, you can buy underpants with activated charcoal liner to absorb the malodor. ...Read more

Brother at 52 diag. Colon cancer. I'm 47 and have Type 1&2 Bristol chart feces for a very long time. Acid reflux, choking at night on acid chestpain?
Unrelated to Ca: Bristol Classification measures stool shapeand transit time in bowel, unrelated to any malignant pathology developing in the colon.

Hard to say: Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, carafate changes stool It is very sticky and that will cause bile to stick to it and be brown. On the other hand, a more serious condition is bleeding into the gut which turns it dried blood color (maroon, or black. But very dark) it might be that but probably not. ...Read more
