Nexium yellow stool

Common Questions and Answers about Nexium yellow stool


Avatar m tn Yellow Stool Yellow stool can indicate that food is passing through the digestive tract relatively quickly. Yellow stool can be found in people with GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Symptoms of GERD include heartburn, chest pain, sore throat, chronic cough, and wheezing. Symptoms are usually worse when lying down or bending. Foods that can worsen GERD symptoms include peppermint, fatty foods, alcohol, coffee, and chocolate. Yellow stool can also result from insuffient bile output.
Avatar f tn I recently went to the bathroom and also noticed a small yellow shaped pod in my stool filled with white powder. I have been on pristiq for a year but was wondering if that was the cause. This is only the second time I have notice it in a year but am very curious as to what cause these.any additional info would be appreciated.

Avatar n tn I can't imagine my stool being brownish yellow for no reason. CAn it be the fiber? Also, my nerves have been really bad, and I feel like if I can here my bowel movements rushing down. How long do supplements such as fiber and vitamins stay in your system? Since yesterday my appetite had decrease, I feel like a constant knot on my throat, maybe because I have a throat infection and sinus???
Avatar n tn Once I had my barium swallow test, it was found that I had a duodenal ulcer. I was placed on nexium for 2 months, and experienced no symptoms while on it, finished a month course of zantac and then still had symptoms of reflux, although the intensity and frequency was greatly reduced. I was put back on nexium and now I am awaiting a consultation with gastroenterologist. My question is, from what I have researched when a person experiences GERD, the colour of their stools can change.
Avatar m tn I will be going for a colonoscopy in a week. I have a long history of GERD (I have taken Nexium for at least 8 years) and I have been getting a bit of acid return up into the throat in the past few days. Does any of this sound familiar with anything you've seen? I have no pain, and all bloating has gone. The only other thing that I've noticed in the past 24 hours is a mildly strange urine smell (but color is light yellow to white).
Avatar n tn When i push on the area, it hurts and can hear lots of fluid moving around. My stool is pure water and bright yellow with a strange smell.. I wake up at 5am and run to the bathroom. I have been in so much pain that all i can do is lay on my back which seems to make it a bit better. What is going on with me? Im tired of not getting any answers from doctors.
Avatar n tn Current Symptoms -Constant green stool sometimes pale, very bright green sometimes, I havent seen normal brown stool in a long time -Thin shredded. small air bubbles.
Avatar m tn i recently started noticing that my stool has been green for a while, im scared it could be from the pain. it doesnt hurt all the time though only sometimes. sometimes it goes away after a burp. im starting to get scared.
Avatar m tn No vomiting / high temps / blood in stool. I do have yellow stools which I assume are caused by all the tums and nexium I am taking. I have GI appointment at the end of the month. Is it possible to have a stomach ulcer for 6 months?
Avatar n tn S **ahhh....yellow stool usually indicates gallbladder issues so this whole thing might be gallbladder related (not to send you into a nervous panic but gallbladder pain is a lot like ulcers and sometimes bile reflux can end up in your stomach so that would also cause your symptoms and also cause ulcers. Again usually diagnosed with endoscope *with bile in the stomach seen* or an ultrasound/HIDA scan of gallbladder...I bet if you ate something fatty/oily you'd probably get sick right?
Avatar n tn My test showed to be good as far as liver check and pancreas check but still having yellow stool that burns like acid.Doc said it was gallbladder making to much acid so if the ultrasound that the er done looked good how do they know i have to much bile from gallbladder?
Avatar m tn I was then placed on Nexium 40mg twice a day. What does all this mean??? I'm not getting any answers....Now 2 months later, 5 - 6 soft stools per day (stools are now corn and foul smelling), still severe reflux and occasional tarry stools.
1469611 tn?1286789840 But as it continued getting worse and more frequent I stopped taking it (was on it about 3 yrs). I was given Nexium (still on 40mg) which helps but it's still pretty bad. I found a new family doctor and she's been doing tests but it seems like it takes forever to get an apt. She found that I was lactose intolerant so I went off dairy and it seemed to help for 1-2 weeks but it slowly came back.
Avatar n tn When suddenly my symptons dissapeared and I had normal bowel movements, now randomly once again I have started to be running to the bathroom, extreme abodominal pains, and my poop ranging from green to yellow to brown. I am also quite tired alot, I'm not sure if its from running, and going to school, but I go to school, run anywhere frome 3-7 miles and I come hom and I can't even get my eyes open.
Avatar n tn At one point, I also started having general stomach discomfort and diarrhea/loose stool, which is usually yellow and mucus-y. Sometimes, I can see bits of undigested food in it. As this has gone along, I have encountered some general body weakness. My doc gave me Nexium for the heartburn. One 40 mg pill a day seemed to help at first (my heartburn was really not as bad at the diarrhea had become when he did this), but a week later, it didn't feel like it was working as well.
Avatar f tn Two months ago I experienced a high spike in my blood pressure and pain in my stomach which occurred a couple of weeks following a change in my stool color which had become very light. Cardiac workups ruled out any cardiology issue. I have lost more than 20 lbs without dieting, I was going to the bathroom several times a day with the stools being yellow, fatty. Usually the bathroom runs were immediately following burning in my stomach.
135222 tn?1210436088 Then after heartburn that never went away I was diagnosed with GERD and put on Prilosec which worked for awhile and then Nexium which for the most part works well. I then got into a bad accident which caused chronic back and leg pain. I went to a pain center and was put on Methadone 50mg a day which I have been on for six years now and am currently trying to come off. Methadone is what started me on this IBS odyssey. Because it is a narcotic it caused horrible constipation.
Avatar n tn ok here is my story i have anaplastic polyps in my stomach i have everything like yours but i am dumping antifreeze green to army green very oily or its bright yellow stool liquid gallbladder removed 3/07 also has polyps in my gallbladder so my conditon might answer yours ?
Avatar m tn Since the last time we spoke, my concern was swollen throat and yellow stool. I have been using the desoximetasone 0.25 cream for my penis irritation. My throat closing, goes on and off. It stopped for about 2 days, however, after a late night drink (alcohol), it went on to swell again. This time, I could see my pulse beating really hard,on the right side of my neck, it hurt a little too. The next day the swelling went on for the whole day. And I felt tensed.

Avatar m tn My normal symptoms that have been present from the time this started was a yellow very soft or diarrhea stool. A Pain under my right rib cage I feel like something is swollen. Heartburn that doesn't go away even when taking 2 pils of 40 MG Nexium per day. My last ultrasound they did say that my gallbladder is overly distended but my doctor said that its normal when the gallbladder is full.
Avatar m tn My skin feels itchy a lot. My stool is sometimes normal consistency and color, but mostly it is formed but very soft, sometimes lighter brown almost yellowish at times, 50/50 it will float or sink, doesn't ever appear fatty, occasional diahrea with mucous, but never constipated, and never clay, blood, or tarry. Urine has been darker than usual, but not brown, orange, or pink. Urine frequency is normal, no pain or burning, no dribble or discharge.
Avatar n tn I have to sleep with many pillows under my neck and upper back in order to breathe. My stool is usually soft, yellow or green. Please, I desperately need help. I am suffering. What can I do next? What is wrong with me? Also, is there a cure for hiatal hernia?
Avatar n tn About 1 year ago I as given Omnicef for a bacterial infection. After 3 days of tumultuous diarrhea, I finally stopped this drug but not soon enough. Ever since then, I have had stomach problems. It first started out as irregular and often BM’s, and then progressed to A constant gnawing or burning between my breastbone and navel in addition to erratic BM’s and gas, bloating, and just an overall lousy feeling within the digestive system.
Avatar m tn I have not seen any improvement but i have seen yellow stool, burring in chest is persistent upon rising. My questions are ; Is it normal for this to continue to burn after so much treatment in a week How long does this take to cure What is the next form of treatment since this is failing thus far i am not losing my mind because there is no mind to lose, but rather i am at a point where i have conceded defeat and just hoping, HOPING, that there is some sort of light at the end of the tunnel.
Avatar n tn I have been shook off with IBS too but disagree.Can i just ask if you get pain at the bottom of the ribs and if it is swollen like a "beer belly".You say you have constipation,when you have bowel movement is it solid and 1 colour and look like food has not digested correctly.Do you get any other pains throughout your body.I ask all of this because these are some of my symptoms aswell as groin pain and tightness around my back.
Avatar m tn For almost a year now I have had the diarrhea, I haven't had a hard stool at all. My stomach hurts all the time, and I am dead tired as well all the time. I just started getting dizzy in the mornings and I have the night sweats as well. I don't have medical insurance yet, but I wIl in March of 08, but I have been missing work by the weeks and I might not make it to March to get the benefits.
