Ask Poopreport: What's Wrong With My Poo?

As long as I can remember, I've had a problem. To start, I just can't hold it. I get no forewarning when I have to poop. I go from being normal to running to the toilet in a second. I also never really have formed poop; it's sometimes thick like soft serve ice cream or like pudding, and it burns the skin it comes in contact with. It's usually acidic and smelly and yellow.

My stomach feels like it's constantly turning, like I ate something that was bad. From my stomach to under my left rib cage, and to all the way down on the left side, turning and winding its way around my belly button, I have constant pain, fire, cramping and stabbing.

A doctor performed an anal scope one me six months ago and just said I had IBS. He prescribed Librax for me, but it isn't effective at all. I don't know what my next step should be and was hoping someone would have an answer.

I want to thank you immensely for putting up the site. Thanks for your time.

You need to eat lots and lots of HOT Sauce.

acidbum, you need to go back to the doctor and report no relief of your symptoms with the Librax. Let the doctor decide your next move.

I don't wanna be tiresome here, but you're gonna have to cut all the shit you're probably eating and drinking. No processed food, refined sugar, or greasy stuff. Go easy on the booze. No soda. No coffee.Try going on a diet of legumes (beans, lentils) and rice with steamed vegetables and no meat for a week. See what happens.

Check out this guy's site as well, all his products are amazing and do what they say they do. His intestinal formula works wonders.(I have no affiliation with the company, BTW)

I have been told by nurses that one of the best ways to well-formed stools is the BRAT diet: bananas, rice, applesauce, toast. It's recommended, as I understand it, when taking medicine that can cause diarrhea; but it is apparently good just for firming up those turds. The BRAT diet is also not exclusive; you eat other things as well (prudently), but include the BRAT ingredients. Try it.

I've got nothing really useful to add except that you might try adding a couple of tablespoons of Sakrete to your diet.

On the other hand, I guess I don't really have anything useful to add. Good luck to you, Acidbum.

It's cement mix SP, and it should not be taken without first consulting your concrete workers union boss. You may need a laborer present to load it onto the spoon.

First off, I'm not a doctor, but have you been checked for stomach ulcers? There is a bacteria called "Helicobacter pylori" that can cause ulcers and stomach problems too.

Get the organs on your left side checked out too (pancreas, spleen). You said your poop is acidic and yellow which makes me think it could be some sort of gastroesophogeal disease. Also, insufficient amounts of bile from your liver/gallbladder can cause yellow stools too. So can bacterial infections of the stomach and intestine.

Start at your stomach/esophagus and work your way down. Get everything checked.

Add cheese to your diet. Lots of cheese. You'll be grunting and straining in no time.

Hi Frank Benway!

Good call on the bile. I think it could have something to do with the burning, because it would be caustic, not just the hot sauce type of burn.

I feel bad for acidbum. Sometimes, life gets just shitty, but I can almost always take a great dump.

I would definitely get your pancreas checked out. The pancreas secretes an alkaline mixture into your small intestine to neutralise the highly acidic chyme that comes from your stomach. If there's a problem with your pancreas it could explain the 'acidic' faeces.

Either way, see your GP and hope you feel better!

I had a similar problem. Turned out I had a problem with my gallbladder! Now that it's gone, I'm pooping more and more normally. Definitely go to the doctor!
