Nasty black diarrhea?
Last Thursday (the 16th), I got very sick. I had horrible muscle aches in my legs, hips, and lower back. I threw up quite a few times and had a fever of almost 102.5. I rested the next day and my muscle aches and nausea subsided, but I had no appetite and I started to get a sore throat and coughing up sputum.

That Saturday, I went to the hospital with a high fever and sharp stomach pains. They gave me a saline bag, some morphine, and antibiotics and took four vials of blood and a urine specimen. They didn’t give me a definitive answer as to what was wrong, only saying that it was some sort of infection. They sent me home with a prescription for azithromycin and had me make an appointment with my GP, who basically said the same thing.

I’ve had no appetite the entire time I’ve been sick and I haven’t eaten anything but Ensure shakes for 9 days, but I’ve had black diarrhea for almost six days. I am 5’5 and now 98 pounds. Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
Internal bleeding?! Am I dying?!

Answer by Lalababy
Black tarry stool could be a sign of internal bleeding. When the stool is black its either blood or too much iron. I would definitely talk to your doctor. This isnt something to go to yahoo about!

Answer by fun.notnuts
Get something to stop the diarrhea immediately. Ask the pharmacist what the best thing is.

Black in a stool means you aren’t absorbing nutrients and just passing them through. In diarrhea I would think this would be stressed even moreso. Don’t get too worried. I was so sick one year I was bleeding from there while having diarrhea and vomiting all at the same time. I took Immodium for the diarrhea and it all stopped immediately.

You could also take some Gravol for vomiting.

Drink clean water to replenish your lost liquids. Take minerals to replenish lost salts in the system.

I am upset with the doctors for not being more informative to you on how to take care of yourself. Disgusted is more like it. If you can, get another opinion, but likely it is a bug and will go away eventually. I felt like that off and on with various symptoms from October to April. And lived to tell the tale.

Take vitamin C (1200 ml every day at least) to up your immune system so you can fight this yourself.

I know it’s scarey. Welcome to the modern world of a new germ every minute.

Good luck xxxx

Black diarrhea and stomach pains?

Black diarrhea and stomach pains?
Hello! This is gonna be long, and pretty awkward.

For the past day I’ve had stomach pains and black diarrhea. Not tarry, and not foul smelling. For the past 3 days my sh!t has stunk to high heaven, but since it turned black it has been oderless.

Accompanying this, I’ve had extreme stomach pains all day and nausea whenever i eat. I’ve also had a headache.

Just lately, whenever my butthole is touched (when I wipe my a$ $ after diarrhea) or when I’m using the bathroom it is sharp, burning pain. Once I stop, the pain is gone.

I know for sure it’s not iron, because I have naturally low iron.

If it matters, yesterday I threw up everything I ate (chocolate ice cream) and it ended up reddish brown. Everyone thought it was from watermelon, but I didn’t have any.

What’s wrong with me? Any guesses? I don’t want to tell my parents, that’ll be awkward…

If it matters, this morning I had blueberries, milk, chocolate chocolate chip pancakes, and cranberry juice.
Some of the chocolate chips may have been stale, would that have caused this? Is it food poisoning?
oh i only threw up because of carsickness.

Answer by roughedges
sounds like you need to see a doctor

pain lasting more than a day needs to be treated, vomiting evreything you eat is another sign you need treatment. possibly a bleeding ulcer

please see a doc or ER dept.

Black diarrhea please helppp?
So lately I’ve been feeling nauseous, like for about 3 weeks or so and I’ve thrown up 3 times in these last 3 weeks for seeemingly no reason because I dont feel sick besides the nausea after eating and sometimes just because. I had diarrhea last night and stomach pains but I went to bed and figured I was fine because I usually get diarrhea at least once a week, but this morning it was black. Not dark brown it was definitely black and now im getting more concerned. What could this be? Any help would be appreciated. Also is it possible that Im pregnant? or more likely something else? im so confused and hate feeling nauseous.

Answer by candycane
It possibly could be something that you are eating. If you are unsure about being pregnant, please take a pregnancy test. If your symptoms continue, see a doctor soon! Better safe than sorry!

I have black stool, I thought I had food poisoning. I took some medication to help with the symptoms.?

I have black stool, I thought I had food poisoning. I took some medication to help with the symptoms.?
About a week ago I ate at the fast food place, but it tasted off, I ended up getting sick later that night, continuous trips to the bathroom, vomiting and getting hot and cold with really bad headaches. Well, I took medication for the symptoms that I had. Everything went away except the nausea and diarrhea. Now my diarrhea is black. Like tar, some solid mostly liquid. I don’t know what it could be or what to do. I am going to go to the doctors, but I am a child care provider and can’t afford to pay for someone to take the kids I care for to see the doctor….I have to wait until the weekend.

Answer by NUNYA B
Did you by chance take pepto bismol? That will give you black stools. Aside from that you may want to go to the ER tonight when the kids have gone home. Black stools is not normal.But pepto will cause that so,that’s why I ask. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon

Black feces after taking pepto bismol?
I have nausea and diarrhea so I started taking pepto bismol yesterday, but today when I went to the washroom my poop was black. Is this normal and should I continue taking pepto bismol?

Answer by Rory
It’s the pepto. Normal.

Answer by Matt B
Having a darkened or black stool after taking pepto bismol is a completely normal and harmless side affect.

Don’t worry about it, and it is 100% safe to continue taking.

Answer by sunny Hill
That’s normal, The problem lies when you have Black stools without eating dark foods or pepto….

Answer by Annie
This is a very common thing to happen when taking Pepto. If you’re still having diarrhea, perhaps some imodium would work better for you?

Nausea, Loss of appetite, stomach aches, black stool, help!?

Nausea, Loss of appetite, stomach aches, black stool, help!?
Alright, for 5 days now I have had a loss of appetite, and mild stomach aches and nausea, one day out of the 5 in the middle I was able to eat a sandwich and potatoes and some other things through out the day. but 2 days after I’ve had almost a complete loss of appetite again, even though I can feel that I’m weak and sometimes slightly light headed because I haven’t eaten much, but I do eat soup and some small things. I know usually stomach viruses and flu’s go away after some days, but I have NO clue what this could possibly because I have never felt like this before I’ve always had a good appetite and I can’t tell if this is serious enough because I haven’t vomited nor had diarrhea only once during this week of sickness that I had small diarrhea, but these past other days just have been slight black stool and I barely had to go #2 I’m guessing since I haven’t eaten much. If anyone has any clue what this could be please leave your opinion. Thank you.

Answer by PortugueseGirl
you could be dehydrated? drink plenty of water and relax.
I kind of had the same thing a couple of weeks ago, if you continue to be sick by monday maybe it would be best if you went to the doctor.

Answer by rasberry vodka
Hi there….There is a possibility that you may have a small bleed in your tummy. Blood in the tummy causes nausea. Black stool is a sign of old blood . If it was red, I would suspect your intestines or polyps or hemorroids. But the black color shows that the blood has already been passed thru your gut. Your weakness/fatigue would be a sign of a low hemoglobin(red cells).. they carry oxygen around in your body. A tummy ache could come from a small ulcer. As for eating , it is a sign that there is something wrong….tummy says”no food. ‘I’m sick”.
This is a bad situation if you let it go. But it has an easy fix. The doctor will schedule you for an EGD. You will be asleep with IV medicine and they will put a tube, with a camera on it, down into your tummy and look around. While the tube is going down they will check the esophagus ( the part you swallow with) all the way down, with the camera. If they spot a “bleeder”, they will cauterize it then. If they run across a bigger problem they will deal with it thru the tube.

Sounds scarry? The medicine they give you is great.. you don’t remember anything and believe or not, you will actually swallow the camera tube yourself…plus when you go home you’ll sleep like a baby.

I am saying that this is a possibility…the signs seem to point to it but you need to go to your DR. or an ER, as this can become much worse.You need to get on this ASAP. Tell your Dr. that you need an emergency appointment because you think you may be bleeding from your stomach. JUST DO IT! Being scared of the diagnosis could mean your life. And if am not right about this, at least you’ll get an answer to your problem.

black feces, nausea, and diarrhea?
This sounds gross but…

about a week ago i noticed that i’d have to go to the washroom while or right after eating, I could also eat A LOT LESS.
my stomach has been making weird strange noises… i just thought i ate something bad and didnt think too much of it-
now its still been going on and for the last 3 days ive had BLACK bowel movements which have freaked me out. I still can barely eat anything and my stomach feels really messed up
ive also lost about 8 pounds in the last week (im on a high calorie diet- bulking and working out so i may have lost it due to the loss of calories)
today i tried to go to the gym (as i do 4x a week) and i felt like headed and nausea, so i went home.

my stomach hurts and i almost feel like puking

what could this be? it’s obviously not getting any better.

Answer by Alex E
are you taking ANYTHING with iron in it, iron causes black stools and stomach upset. Stop your dietary changes and all supplements for a week and see how it goes. I should also mention that black stool can be a sign of blood in your GI tract and if you begin to feel weak, dizzy, or pass out seek medical attention immediately. Oh if you do vomit and get black coffee grounds up, go to the ER.

Answer by gabi
the black color is from digested blood. if you have fever you may have a Gastroenterocolitis. If you have stomach pains, burns, you may have an ulcer or gastritis. You should see a doctor because black feces is not normal. The feces might be black if you take Iron supplements

nausea, diarrhea, black stool, feeling faint?
early yesterday morning i woke up finding myself running to the bathroom, to go number 2. it felt as if i had urinated through my rectum, yet it was a normal color. i went back to sleep and woke up a little later and i was very nauseated and had the urge to go to the bathroom again. throughout the day i went to the bathroom about 5 or 6 times and felt faint all day… cold sweats and being nauseated. then it went away for a few hours and came back all night. i havent been able to eat or drink anything without feeling terrible or without feelin like i am just going to throw it back up since yesterday. ive been in discomfort in my whole abdomon area and sometimes a sharp pain in the middle of my stomach right below my ribs.
this morning i woke up fine but as soon as i ate i had to rush to the bathroom and when i wiped i noticed that it was black and tarry. since then i have taken 2 more trips to the bathroom and it’s been black. ive been in discomfort all day and dont feel normal.

if it even matters i have a history of cysts in my ovaries.
and for about 3 days leading up to me being sick i had a really bad pain in my abdomon that wasnt normal at all.

should i see my doctor or is it normal, say if i ate something that went bad or something.

please help
it doesnt smell an different from what i have noticed but it isnt normal shape. it almost looks like it has clotted together

Answer by Quyosh
about it you can get information from here http://american-medical-services.notlong.com/?q=meclizine&qid=20090607155218AAMIkDN

Answer by Bob
Black tarry stools jmplies internal bleeding. I’d get it checked. Take Care!

Answer by snowball
When you’ve gone to the bathroom and its been black has it been really foul smelling with an abnormal shape?
I am just concerned that you may have a bleed in your gastrointestinal track, when blood has been digested by your body it turns black. The fact that you feel faint and have abdominal pain in combination with that is concerning.

Please go see your doctor!

What does black feces, nausea, and diarrhea mean?
I’m really worried about what’s going on with me right now, so please bare with me through the nasty details. I really need help!

On the night of july 3rd, i ate some vietnamese noodles called PHO and came home. after a few hours, i started feeling REALLY nauseous and went to the bathroom to find myself with diarrhea. The next morning, june 4th, i was going to universal studios, so i took some pepto bismol pills and ended up throwing up, after hours of feeling nauseous. I felt better then soon felt nauseous again the whole day. I didn’t eat all day except a few bites of a chicken tender. i also had some stomach pains and headaches. I felt nauseous on and off today, and couldn’t eat much because i felt nauseated after eating. my stomach keeps making gurgling sounds today and i went to the bathroom and had black feces. it was black, had a unique odor, and it was really dispersed.

what is going on with me? please help ASAP!
i also had some fatigue, although i assume it was from the lack of sleep from the previous night.
i also had some lower back pains, but i assume that is also because of the fatigue.

i just thought i’d add that because it might be important(?) thanks!

Answer by houseofknightsandladies
go see a doctor it could be food poisoning or a bacterial infection.

Answer by tallyhopesuave
you’re sick! GO TO THE DOCTOR!

Answer by Annalisa !
you have food poisoning. go to the doctor and sue those vietnamese bitches

Answer by dumplingmuffin
it means you are bleeding interally and need medical help NOW

Answer by Paramedic Girl
Bacterial infection, food poisoning, dehydration… many things can be causing this.

Because this has lasted more than a day, its time for you to seek medical attention as soon as possible.

For now, drink some Gatorade as you are definitely dehydrated (due to vomiting and diarrhea). Stay away from fruits, fruit juices and dairy products until you know what is going on and has subsided for more than 2 days straight.

Do see a doctor today, or Urgent Care.

Answer by Ozz
You may have food poisoning or appendicitis. In either case you need immediate medical attention.

Answer by David P
go see your doctor asap

Answer by Joanie
Sounds like food poisoning to me. To replace your natural fluids you have lost thru diarrhea and vomitting….drink some gatorade or any dark cola….has electrolytes, glucose, stuff you have put out. You got to get it back. Don’t think a doctor would help much….it has to get out of your system. But you do have to keep your system hydrated. Don’t eat….drink, and drink and drink.

I have the same thing and so did my sisters. First it was nausea, then it was a bad headache, chills and sweats, and now I have nasty diarrhea. It was extremely watery and sometimes black. I am going to mention it to my doctor. I have been sick for 2 days. Hope you feel better.
