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.

Hi, I've been suffering with extreme stomach and abdominal pain for over a year now, I had a camera down my throat and was told I had gastritis which I started pantoprezole 40mg twice daily and ranitidine 300mg before bed. Over a year later I'm still getting these pains from my my stomach and all down my abdomen (upon waking my whole abdomen feels bruised like pain similar to being winded) along with constipation, nausea and general feeling of being unwell. Any help appreciated as this has lead to me now having anxiety :/ I've also had a ultrasound to rule out gallstones

I traveled internationally two days back and the same night had a bout of vomiting (with lot of nausea and sweating) and loose motions. It was a one off event and no temperature. The nausea persisted in the morning. Doctor prescribed Ciprolaxacin (500 mg OD) plus dompeirdon and Zantac. This seems to give me palpitations (tachycardia). The doctor has now stopped Cipro and Zantac and gone for Cefixime. I looked up the net for adverse reactions of Cefixime and do not like them. I still have some nausea and dizziness. Also I have a history of very sensitive stomach (IBS). What to do?

My wife is diabetic and has chronic gastritis. She has this acute pain on the upper abdomen and the pain can only be relieved by pathidine. The doctors have prescribed Hyoscine,omeprazole,amoxycilline,ranitidine and promethazine but nothing seems to help as the pain keeps on coming back. Endoscopy was done and it came out negative, no inflammation of the stomach lining, no ulcer. Please help as we have spent a lot of money on medical bills and nothing seems to improve.
