Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If the poop is sour that means it is acidic and it is because of acidity and indigestion.You may be suffering form acute gastritis or GERD (gastro esophageal reflux syndrome).Consult a doctor and he will prescribe you an anti-emetic along with an antacid like ranitidine and you should be fine in a day .Also please take care and don't have spicy food;heavy meals;fatty fried food as it will increase the acidityand the poop may come again.
thanks

Hi, there s poop stuck in my anus and I can t push it back in and out and it s really uncomfortable and it hurts sometimes. When I use the mirror to see my butt there s a weird big lump or something and I don t know what that is. This started two nights ago. Will Laxative work or do I really need to see a doctor?

Hello, for the past 3 days now I have experienced a horrible pain within my anus when pooping and sitting- i noticed a orange/red mucus like substance in my toilet afterwards and am extremely worried. I barely go to the toilet now because of this pain- it also stops me from urinating because the pain is unbareable when going to the bathroom. The pain is very uncomfortable.

I started burping excessively after I was prescribed omeprazole and ranitidine twice a day for 8 weeks. Burping started a week after I started taking these. I am now no longer taking either medicine but burping still there. I burp straight after eating and also when stomach is empty. There is no regurgitation.

I only need to take the 75 mg tab of Zantac for heartburn (and because I take Celebrex.) I have used up my 75 mg pills of Zantac but I have a bottle of 150 mg tabs of Zantac I haven t used. Could I cut the 150 mg pills in half and take those? I didn t know if it has some type of timed-release coating or such that would prohibit doing that? I didn t know there was a cost for this. Never mind, I ll just ask my pharmacist tomorrow.

I am on my third weekly treatment of chemotherapy, and have 9 more weeks to go. I have never had digestion or reflux problems before, but I am experiencing constipation, gas, reflux and burping. Is there anything over the counter I can take, especially for reflux? Reflux has prompted vomiting, and I want to avoid that. I would rather not take ranitidine or additional prespecriptions if I can help it.
