I would see your doctor, you may have a bleeding ulcer if you have black stools.It's nothing to ignore. I had a stomach ulcer which caused pain but it wasn't bleeding and healed.

Black & Tar consistency stools are a sign of blood in your digestive system. If this is you, you definitely want to see your doctor about this. It could be from many things, even a reaction to your meds, dont delay.
