| | Re: Black sticky stools and abdominal pain?
I am getting increasingly worried. About a year ago, I started experiencing a slight pain in my left side, lower abdomen. I came and went, and I didn't think much of it. Lately though, I've started to notice that I get blackish colored, sticky stools more frequently, and I don't know if I should be worried about this. About 3 months ago, I saw some blood in the bowl, and saw a doc. When I told him about the pain and the blood in the bowl, he recommended a colonoscope, which turned out to be moderate hemmaroids, nothing serious according to him. Now, I've started noticing the black, sticky stools every now and then (few times a week). What should I do?
BTW, I'm 27 and have been diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy, a kidney nephritic disease, not at a serious stage, but I am on medication. I'm on Tritace, Ramipril (10mg/day)and 6g of fish oil (Omega3) a day and well as Allopurinol 200mg/day.. Could this have anything to do with it?
Would really appreciate some answers or suggestions. Thanks!
