    Try not to worry, stool colour change and acid reflux are common with IBS. Staying calm will help you manage your symptoms but anxiety will make them worse. Simply try a food diary to see what foods may be going through you too quickly. Fast transit time can cause yellow stools. Try antacids or milk for reflux; this works for me. My IBS is in remission because I do not let it worry me and I avoid things that cause me stress. These are your best options to help your IBS.

      My stools have never been yellow and I don't know whether they have been smelly because my sense of smell is poor. However, IBS is known to cause the symptoms you are having. Everyone experiences IBS differently so no one person will have the exact same symptoms as another. IBS is very individual.A food diary, trying to stay calm and taking antacids can help.

    Hi Carl. Was it bright yellow? or yellowish brown? and is it in a daly basis? Have you had any test before, recently? like bloodworks, ultrasound, stool test?

    Carl, try taking probiotics. When it comes to digestion and gut help, believe me these are one of the safest and best way to get relief. Probiotics are basically healthy bacteria that support our gut, digestion and urinary tract. They are necessary for the correct functioning of our system and stronger immunity. Sadly various medications we take like antibiotics tend to kill both the good and bad bacteria, as a result gut flora is poor and various complications arise as a result.

    So my advise to you is to boost your diet on probiotics. Eat some yogurt, kefir or fermented milk. If your condition is too serious and you need immediate relief, use probiotic supplements. I would recommend Flourish Probiotics by Eu Natural. This is basically a combination of healthy bacteria that will support your digestive system, support your gut health and improve your overall well being.

    And drink a lot of water.

    Check it out and let me know what you think.
