capsule type things in stool

For the past several weeks I have been suffering from sinus/ allergy problems and when I have this I get bouts of loose stool. In the stool I have noticed what looks like orange colored capsules. I thought at first that it may be my allergy meds ( currently the only meds I am taking) but I have noticed as many as 3 a day every day in my stool even though I only take one allergy pill a day. Worried I bravely took a closer look. These capsules are a rectangular shape with tapered ends and look like they are coated in a orange or sometimes reddish colored gel coating and are filled with a white substance that looks like a thick powder and has a sulfer smell. I cannot think of anything in my diet that would resemble this. Any one have any idea? I did mention this to my doctor as I have also suddenly developed high blood pressure but she did not have any idea but did schedule me for a full panel of blood testing including liver and kidney function.
Thanks for any help.

Re: capsule type things in stool


What goes in goes out....
What meds are you on..just the capsules for your allergies?

Considering it takes anywhere from 12 - 48 hours (or even more for some people) for food to be digested and defacated.

Maybe you should do a daily diary for 3 days to see what your intake is. Absolutely everything.

Have you been taking any aspirin or Tylenol?

Strange indeed....but a definite challenge if it's like you describe.

Keep posting.

It's all a matter of perspective!
