Air bubbles in my stool

Hi All,

I have noticed that my stool has Alka-Seltzer feel to it when it hits the water. Its full of small air bubbles. It also breaks apart very easily after enters the water. Please advise if anyone has had these symptoms. I have had some reflux and upper abdomen discomfort in the last few weeks. 2 weeks ago, I had my stool checked for bacteria culture and come back negative. The only new med that I have been taking in the past 2 weeks is Ventolin HFA (Albuterol Sulfate Inhalation Aerosol) for my coughing after coming down with flue. I have also been eating lots of broccoli sprouts and home made fresh ginger tea mixed with little honey.

Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!
