Passing frequent, runny stools. Acid reflux causing cough, vomitting. Burning in anus. Suggestions?

Hello. I am 26, I weigh 315 pounds & for the past 3 days I have had to go to the bathroom very frequently and every time it is loose, watery, runny stool . Along with this, I woke up early this morning from a bad acid reflux reaction that caused me to cough until I vomited & I had trouble calming down my breathing afterwards. I still have frequent bathroom trips with runny stool & each time my anus burns & tingles worse.

Hi there ~

If you are passing frequent runny stools then you most definitely have diarrhea which is either viral in origin or is a result of food poisoning, rarely it could be amoebiasis or another such parasitic infection. If bacterial you would have runny stools too but it would be malodorous and maybe bloody. The acid reflux can be treated with PPIs or proton pump inhibitors. Visit with a GI specialist who can guide you. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
