Thoughts on this

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome,

During a BM, there is increased abdominal pressure (because of tensing the abdominal muscles and something called a valsalva - like when you hold your breath and push out). So this could increase the likelihood of refluxing acid in some people. Perhaps that is what you are feeling?
