I have been having problems with mucus in my stool , it s usually a yellow color and it either comes out in long strands or just lays in the water. My stool is not firm but either loose to not even together, instead it looks like dirt in water. When I am having this problem I have severe stomach cramps , and a lot of gas. Also I have several BMs in the range of a half hour, usually right after I eat or even drink sometimes. I have no known allergies to any foods. What do I do? This has been occurring for about 2 months.

I went again the other night and am being treated for yeast infection.Now I have lower back pain and still the burning when I pee and even throughout the day and this morning I felt sick to my stomach...not sure if I should go back to the doctor. There is nothing showing in my urine sample that I did a few weeks ago

52 - female, I started with a gurgling stomach a few months ago, and then burping, and finally woke one night to extreme acid reflux . I read about low stomach acid and tried HCL and it has been helping me digest my food. I have constipation , a slight pain under my rib cage, tested and had ultrasound for everything, and results were all good. So my naturopath believes pylori might be the culprit. I am very healthy otherwise, thin, and eat organic foods, in the summer I grow my veggies, I know longer drink coffee, tea, alcohol , or sugar. Does this sound like pylori causing my low stomach acid.? Help, thanks.!
