Can acid indigestion cause farts to feel physically hot? Can it also cause your poop to feel hot?

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?

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

My anus itches. I have anal mucus. I get nauseous twice a week. My feces are inconsistent shapes. My weight is fluctuations rapidly. Acid reflux?

Proctocolitis?: Acid reflux has nothing to do with this. Sounds like rectal or colon inflammation (proctocolitis). Maybe worse-than-usual irritable bowel syndrome, but it's also possible you have inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis), celiac disease, or other serious intestinal problem. If you're gay and have had anal sex, STDs are possible. See your doctor or a gastroenterologist soon. ...Read more

Have burning anus flatulence all the time. Like acid burn. Stay away from acidic foods, but still have foul smelling, burning anus flatulence. Help?

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. The upper GI symptoms and acid reflux are unrelated to potential for a colonic reoplasm which usually is induced via the polyoma virus entering mucosa and establishing a field effect in which various lesion arise. One should check out bowel pathology via colonoscopy. ...Read more

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
