This has happened to me once yesterday evening and twice this morning. Should I be alarmed?
The stools are usually of diarrhea consistency yet kind of tar like + they are nearly solid black.
I recently broke up with my girlfriend and had a few days of pretty heavy drinking, 12+ beers throughout the day and night each day. I have always been somewhat of a heavy drinker and shortly after those 3 rough days of being down and in a dark place, I started to notice my stool was very dark brown or on the verge of black. It doesn't stink though. I read up on reasons why this would happen and the bleeding obviously scared me because of the drinking. Although I also had been taking some Chlorella supplements that contain iron off and on but they never gave me this color stool before. Sometimes green. Along with some Pepto Bismol the day before but only 2 doses, which is another cause. Some purple flavored sports drinks and even prune juice. So all of this can add up to the dark colored stool from what I read but I am still very worried. My stomach has been uneasy and makes me feel like I don't want to eat anything. Not sure if it's an upset stomach or still from the hangover. I'm into day 2 now, and it is still there and unsure when it should go away if it was from something other than bleeding? It doesn't seem to be dark black like tar or stink so I am keeping my fingers crossed. I am 27 and have always been very healthy other than my drinking habit which I am obviously going to drop because this has scared the poop out of me
Its Friday now and have dropped all the supplements and juices to see if it goes away. Just not sure how long it would take to go back to normal since I took multiple things that could cause it. I guess otherwise I will be calling the doctor on Monday.
I had irregular bowel movements for months and i finally became regular the last two weeks but something is terribly wrong because my stool is dark/black and smells like rotten eggs every time, my nutrition is in check because i am a bodybuilder and i consume 30-35 grams of fiber every day and eat all the micro nutrients I need, my macro nutrients are roughly 80 grams of fat and 180 grams of protein and rest of the calories are carbs ( i eat around 3000 calories every day.
Note: I was eating the right amounts of nutrients even while constipated.
is there any health issue i could be facing?
BTW I am 18 years old.
My husband has been suffering from lower left pain and tenderness in his abdominal area. He also has loose stool and a lot of the time feels like he needs to go, but can't. Cramping included. He randomly feels nauseous. His pain is also cause with eating, so he avoids eating big portions. He does eat yogurt, one cup a night. It sometimes helps. He has had a colonoscopy done and it was clean. Heartburn is also included, he takes rolaids every night. I just wish I could help him. I hate seeing him in pain! What is wrong with him?View 1 Replies
I am 24 years old and for the past month I have been experiencing increased gasses and watery stools. I have scheduled a check up with a doctor, but have to wait a bit since I am abroad. Naturally, I have googled quite a bit to see what can it be. Today I had a weird stool. I had a not so firm brown stool while it was surrounded with black toilet water. Is this blood? On internet I found that released blood should be red, while if it is upper in the body it should be combined with feces so I am puzzled.View 1 Replies
So it all started roughly 4 weeks ago where suddenly one day I was getting really bad stomach cramps, bloating, a lot of gas especially after eating (my stomach would literally rumble all the time, eating or not eating), had very little appetite. Went to the doctors a few days later and they said I had a stomach infection, I wasn't having diarrhea or vomiting at the time.
I started to worry a lot during the next week or so as I suffer from pretty bad anxiety and the symptoms weren't changing at all. I lost about a stone of weight in a week and a half which I assume was down to not eating (I could only manage a few bananas a day)
About a week later my stomach cramps seemed to stop and a pain developed just under my right set of ribs, which seemed to get worse and worse as the days went by. I started to get really loose BMs of a weird green dark orange colour which seemed to reduce the pain and would find myself going 3+ times a day and not feel empty after the first. I find myself needing to urinate a lot more frequently too, maybe cause I'm drinking a load of water?
In my stools are these weird black dry bits of varying length (they were purple today but I'm not sure if that was kidney beans I ate last night) They are dry and kinda look like the bits of popcorn shell that come off the corns before you put them in the microwave, but not as hard if that makes sense?
I went to the doctors a few more times and got shrugged off saying it was all down to my anxiety which was causing the issues?
Finally I got to see a good doctor who gave me a blood test which came back with nothing and said I had IBS which was developed as a post-infection mixed with my anxiety levels. I kept asking if any other tests were required and he kept saying there is no point.
Now I usually have a constant pain under my right ribcage, which comes and goes through the day, usually worse after eating, sometimes under my left ribcage is a feint pain too and sometimes it'll rise into upper abdomen.
So what the hell is going on here? Sorry for the massive essay. I'm just really worried about these black bits in my stool, are they blood?!
I am a generally healthy, 22 year old male. However, I have a persistent problem with my digestion, particularly my stomach.
The issue began when I was 16. I would often have to do a poo multiple times a day, and I had some cramps. My stool was often undigested food. My doctor diagnosed IBS.
This continued off and on until I was 20, when I went to India and got two intestinal infections: one was a bacterial infection, which cleared up after a week of antibiotics (although I continued to have bloody diarrhea), the other was a parasite, which also went away after a week of an amebicide. However I continued to have issues with my bowels, with a black stool.
This has continued up till now. I find I often have pain in what I assume is the stomach area (the area of my top two abdominal muscles). I have frequent bloating, I burp a lot, and discomfort after I eat. I have a lot of trouble digesting vegetables, and if I eat them raw I can see them in my poo undigested.
So I have been bleeding on and off and passing mucus with my stool for 5/6 Years I'm 24 years of age and have did 6 stool tests in the last 3 months.
3 weeks ago I did a stool test where the inflammation level was 77.5 so doctor who thought it was ibs was not worried as I didn't have a high enough inflammation level for it to be anything serious but me being me wanted a colonoscopy just to be sure there is nothing sinister going on. So he persuaded me to do one more stool test this time my inflammation level went up to 255 am now Booked in to the gastroenterology department at the hospital I think for a colonoscopy!
Now ow I have only had bright blood in stools never dark or congested blood and often pass mucus in/on the stool too,I have no real abdominal pain in the tummy but I do pass wind quite regularly so the main worry is what diseases/conditions will a colonoscopy look for?.. Obviously Colon Cancer but what else....when the doctor told me the results over the phone she mentioned see if the inflammation it due to gastroenteritis or piles..
I'm gonna make this short because there isn't much to it. For about 3 weeks I have had lower back pain. Not a bad pain. Kind of a pain where I have to sit a certain way or I feel the pressure. Well, the last two days I have experienced some what I can see as if it's black stool. Now, I have had experience with black stool, because I used to for 5 years work on a medic unit. Now I'm no doctor, and all I did was transport patients. Also, my father has had some experience with internal bleeding, and that caused black stool. I don't drink, I don't smoke, all I do is dip tobacco. But, I don't swallow the tobacco. I have no clue what this could be.View 2 Replies
It all started a few months ago when I noticed blood on my toilet paper. It was just a few spots. Then I started to notice these random red lines and also orange lines on my toilet paper. Then ii also started to notice these black specks and spots on my toilet paper. That was two months ago and these symptoms are still concurrent. Lately though I find that my bowel activities are strange. Ive been having to a lot more lately, Diarrhea, Constipation diarrhea.
And also last week my poop was completely green, and this morning my stool has these weird yellow round things in it. I know it wasn't corn as I haven't eaten that in a few months. The blood is usually bright red and sometimes its more of a dark maroon color. A few months ago I also had a weird a cold that made me have blood in my throat when i would clear my throat but it went away. I have also had shortness of breath and abdominal pains once in awhile.
I went to the doctor and they said that they will send me for a ultrasound but what are chances that this cancer?
I'm going to list all my symptoms.:
Blood on toilet paper once in a while. (Brighjt red and sometimes dark maroon...)
Black Specks/Spots on toilet paper once in a while.
Orange little lines, and also little red lines on toilet paper...
Frequent diarrhea/Runny stool.
Green Stool all day yesterday.
Today = Stool has yellow round things in it, looks like corn.
Abdominal pain sometimes,
Shortness of breath
Fatigue a lot of the time
Blood when clearing throat a few months ago but it never happened again.
I also went for a blood test when i had shortness of breathe a few months ago and they din't find anything.
Is it colon cancer?
A few weeks ago I noticed my stools were black and sticky, they are now dark brown, I also have indigestion after eating and a sore back after a nights sleep, any idea what is the cause ?View 1 Replies
For a bit over 3 weeks, I have had diarrhea. I was having 15-20 movements a day for the first week, but now it's closer to 6-10. There has been white and yellow mucus in the stools regularly, and they have varied a bit in consistency, but mostly have been watery. It smells very bad, and just a few days ago, lots of black flakes have been appearing in the stools; they look like coarse pepper grindings. I haven't had a fever, and just this morning started to develop some pain in the front right of my abdomen.
I've been tested for salmonella, c. diff, and likely a few other things via stool samples, and everything has come back negative. I also had a CAT scan which showed some inflammation in my colon, but everything else looked okay. Just this morning, I had a movement that was entirely mucus and black flakes which smelled like rotten eggs and burned quite bad coming out, and it freaked me out a bit. It might take a few days to set up the appointment for a colonoscopy, I'm wondering what is the possible prognosis, and at what point I would need to go to the ER.
I am 32, and have always been in good health. I stay active, and have no family history of cancer or digestive issues.
For the past month I've experienced stomach problems. It started with diarrhea and severe cramps that caused bleeding(I'm assuming hemorrhoids). So I went to the hospital and they said they think it's diverticulitis but never got back to me but sent me home with antibiotics. Its been a few weeks and the pain is awful and it is effecting my life and work. It happens whenever I eat or lift things. I can't sleep right now because the pain. Luckily I only have diarrhea sometimes now but still I feel weak and the stomach pain is too much.View 1 Replies
I had this stool with bright red blood yesterday and today. I couldn't tell how much blood there is but the water became bright red with 50% visibility (I looked at the stool ). I don't feel any pain and I feel nothing at all on my body. The day before I had the stool with blood, I drank four cups of green tea. I know tea is acidic but I am not sure if this is the cause of it. My urine is fine and without blood.View 1 Replies

I'm 31, male, and up until monday i hadn't had the urge to poop. Finally when it came on monday night it was much to big and was hurting very badly when trying to push it out.
Since then i have tried everything. Suppositories, stool softener in pill form, miralax, and now my anus is extremely sore and hurts and im getting stomach pain and it hurts to sit down because of all the pressure in my colon.
I also did try using a medical glove and vaseline and breaking it apart. Got some out but it's still in there.
At this point i don't know what else there is to do. Should i go to the er? I'm feeling that's the only option left.
i have upper right abdominal pain, lower back pain, bouts of watery diarrhea 3-4 times a day, and am constantly wiped out and exhausted. all tests have come back normal( ultrasound,blood,mono)i'm still being examined, but wondered if you had any ideas?
last year i suffered with lymes*(most likely but not definite)or a super virus and was pretty much a potato for a month, but the new pain has been going on for over 3 months.
I have been having white seed like bits appears in my stools for a few months now. I'm aware it could be parasites ,I took medication for threadworm but no change . They are about half a centimetre long and white and contain quite a few per stool.View 1 Replies
