Anybody know anything about it? i have had a little bit before here and there but this morning it was almost like spraying out of a can
it was all foam and it made a crackling sound.

i am taking zero medications right now and the last food i had eaten were a couple sunny sid eup eggs.

You may want to think back on your diet for the past few days. The classic medical description for stools with a lot of fat in them is "fat, frothy and floating." Sounds like that may be what happened to you?

If it continues, call your GI. This can also be caused by deficiencies of certain digestive enzymes or bile, so he may want to check your liver function.

or go on meds because it could be that you're flaring.

Definitely get it all checked out, however....maybe stool samples as well.

Are you having any other symptoms such as rectal pain, urgency,frequency, bleeding.etc?

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
