Avatar m tn Consistency of diarreha but a piece of one of the stool had a section that was rounded almost like a bubble and was completely black. rest of the stool was dark brown. didnt get very close to look for white seeds because I almost threw up trying to look. For the amount of things going on with me, if you read up on the other thread.
Avatar f tn I wish some good people out there can help me solve my IBS problem.. Have been getting this problem of constipation not of the hard stool ...but sticky stool. Becos of the stickiness, I think it stuck to the wall of the intestine(so sticky..I need to splash the toilet bowl few times to clean it off) even the peristalsis movement cannot ooze much of the excrement.. yes, there may be some that came out but most of the time I don't feel satisfy,the feeling of there are much more inside..
Avatar n tn I had them, and i asked my doc, and she told me that they're completely normal. Everyone has them. Its when your whole stool is black and tar like that you have to see your doc. Also, black stool means that you're bleeding high up in your colon. That would be on your right side, at least, if not in your stomach or esophogus. You're ok!!! But, you mentioned that your stools are greasy.
Avatar n tn 45 year old white male 6 foot 215 lb I have not been out of country nor have I had sexual contact in past 5 years. For the past 3 years I have had a persistent soft loose liquid stool. 90% of the time this is urgent explosive to say the least. When I mean urgent I have seconds to stop what I am doing and get to restroom. The moment I stand from the toilet the urge returns again and again. Only after several bouts of this can I return to what I was doing.
764939 tn?1234589366 It started out when I was passing large amounts of mucous without stool for approx. three days. I then started to have severe diarrhea. On one occasion a passed large blood clots without stool. The blood and the blood clots never returned after this event, I continued to have diarrhea however. I went into my Family practice doctor after two weeks of diarrhea and severe abdominal pain. At this appointment a CT scan of my abdomen was down and stool samples, and blood test were ordered.
Avatar f tn The other issue, which may or may not be a coincidence, is that my stool has changed to a green color. [It is like an olive green color.] This started about 5 weeks ago, and it has been consistent ever since. I was not concerned about it because I thought it may be a reaction to the PPI drugs I was taking, but when I stopped taking the PPI's for 4 days before the ph test last week, the stools were still green.
Avatar f tn for others reading this, I do not take, nor have I ever taken Pristique, so I honestly do not think these objects in the stool are related to Pristique, however, wonder if Pristique could be causing gallbladder issues to cause more stones ?I'll be showing this thread to my doctor.
Avatar f tn If you have a lot of blood in your stool the stool itself would be black like tar. If there are traces of blood/mucus when you wipe or some in the toilet it could be many things such as fissures, hemorrhoids, bowel disease, partial bowel obstruction etc. However there are times if you have blood it can be Endo related but most times Endo will not fully go through the bowel. Most people with Endo need colonoscopies done to rule out bowel disease and see if Endo has perforated the bowel.
Avatar m tn When a person has blood in their stool from advanced cirrhosis, which you definitely do not have, the stool will appear black. This is the color the blood turns when it goes through the digestive system. Many people think they will see red blood but no the blood turns black when a person has an internal bleed from varices (enlarged veins along the GI tract caused by portal hypertension). Again something that you don't have to worry about.
Avatar n tn Hi, The character of the stool is generally related to what you eat and whatever medications or supplements you are taking. Your description is not really specific for anything, and as you are writing on a cancer forum, it doesn't raise any alarm for cancer. The presence of blood is one of the basis of screening tests for colon cancer, and based on your description of it now being black and tarry, then there probably isn't any blood. Iron supplements tend to make the stool darker.
Avatar f tn The treatment usually consists of stopping the medication ( and taking an alternative safe medication) and for healing medications like prilosec and carafate are taken. Medications should be taken for 4-8 weeks for complete healing. Black stools warrants an upper GI endoscopy which will also confirm the diagnosis. Your stomach lesion will heal with this approach. And dont worry - this will not permanently damage the your stomach if it has been only a short term problem.
Avatar f tn I've tried imodium, pepto, and anything else that will stop it. The pepto and some others cause it to be black, other than that it doesn't stop it. I get bad reflux and think that maybe the Malox is causing it? I'm out of my nexium and cannot get this doctor to re-perscribe it. So, I'm left with over the counter, what ever I can get at the time, remedies. Any thoughts? This makes it real hard to go to work or even leave the house.
Avatar m tn Urticaria is just a generic term for hives , there could be a number of things causing them ..
649848 tn?1484935765 Symptoms of bleeding include vomiting blood and passing black, tarry stools. The black stools are a result of blood that has been metabolized and partially digested. Note: that iron and bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto-Bismol, Pink Bismuth) will also turn the stools black. What causes H. pylori infection? While the exact mode of transmission H. pylori is not known, it seems to be spread from person to person by saliva, and most people who are infected become infected as children.
Avatar m tn I think I was eating contaminated food in Indonesia and 2 years later I am having blood in my stool and pain. I feel movement in my rectum when I'm sitting sometimes now. I have hemmarhoids but could that cause the feeling of movement? After a bowel movement I feel better, that I can breathe better and feel more normal.
1503484 tn?1338479203 I would recommend asking for a stool sample to look for blood in the stool (because you had black stool) and for parasites and other things. It isn't stomach cancer because that would have shown up on the endoscopy. I doubt it is a tapeworm but it could be.
Avatar n tn Other common but non-characteristic symptoms are bloating, constipation or diarrhea. Stool may be whitish or with white or black clumps of yeasts of pepper to pea size. The third (but the first to try) thing which speaks for candida, are symptoms which improve in first days, then get WORSE, due to massive candida dying, and then improve again.

Avatar m tn Clark's Super W Blend (which contains Wormwood, a POWERFUL anti-parasitic); Organic Cloves; and GREEN Black Walnut Hulls TINCTURE (Black Walnut Hulls capsules are fine, but the liquid GREEN Black walnut TINCTURE is far more effective. TRUST ME ON THIS). I kid you not; by the second day, I passed worms. Clear, (sometimes white) stringy worms (pinworms) and tons of egg larvae, were in my stools. And, my stools were NORMAL stools; I wasn’t having diarrhea or constipation.

Avatar m tn Horrible bloating, foul smelling stool, little black coffee grounds in my stool, headaches, fatigue, it's not fun anymore. I struggled so hard to stop binging/purging and now i feel even worse....
Avatar m tn I also had constipation for a week but three bowel movements before sleeping (dark brown stool with black clumps mixed in). This morning I woke up with restless leg syndrome, and looked in the mirror and once again my eyes are as tiny as pins. Maybe I should see a neurologist or neuro-ophthalmologist.
Avatar n tn 5, which I know has dropped since then, because I vomited black stuff yesterday. Hemoccult tests have been positive. I've been on Nexium for GERD, and have been told the LES is gone. If I don't take the Nexium, I'm in a lot of pain with the acid reflux/heartburn. I am so exhausted and wore out from the low Hgb, I am losing my sanity. All they do for me is transfuse me and to me that's like putting a band-aid on it. I want and desperately need to know the answers and why this is happening to me.
Avatar m tn In November of this year, I went to India and suffered from diarrhea (with blood and mucus in my stool). I took tinizadole. It had no effect. I moved to Berlin in Jan, produced three stools for a specialist and was tested for dysentery and giardia. Both came back negative. They also run some blood tests. I was put on a strong general antibiotic, which worked, sort of. For two or three months, I had a relatively regular stool. (Not as firm as usual, though formed a regualr colour).

Avatar f tn If thrash, you will need to take antibiotics. If gastritis, they will give you prilosec. Check your stool - if your stool is really dark or black that means there is blood in it and your stomach is bleeding. This is very dangerous and make sure to get to the doctor asap. You need to take care of your anxiety or your will end with thrash or gastritis (if you don't already have it).
