Feeling bloated, weight gain, loose stool. Burning sensation in the rectum. Antacid causing constipation. Remedy?

I have been bloated for the past 3-4 weeks. My belly is hard and i've gained 4 lbs in 1 wk and 8 in 2 wks. My bowel movements have changed to the extent that they are soft and not well formed but not diarrhea. This is accompanied by a severe burning of my rectum. The burning sensati8n was so great 4 adys ago that I took some antacid liquid but all that did was constipate me. Now though the burning is worse. I went 6 times today.

Hi, thanks for the query.
Root cause of your's problems are bloating and burning sensation in rectum ( anus).
The worrisome is that the change in the habit of bowel movement ( if persist than dangerous)
If previously the consistency of stool was solid , now it is semisolid ( soft as you mentioned) than change the dietary habit for few days it will be right.
One most important point to be noted is that chances of haemorrhoids are very much in your case.
Bloating may be due to gastritis and hyper acidity.
Good luck. DR. HET.
