Re: gas pain upper right stomach
Hi...neither of the meds you take will cause black stool. You should contact the doctor and have stool samples done to check for occult blood.
When you wipe, is there any blood at all? is it black or does it appear very dark brown?
When you were diagnosed with GERD, did you have an upper endoscopy done?
ARe you by chance on any iron supplements? or any Pepto Bismol?
While there are some foods/supplements to cause the stool to be very dark or black....bleeding in the stomach, small intestine or upper colon can cause the black stool.
Don't wait to talk to the doc about it.
Oh, and regarding IBS, did you have a colonoscopy before diagnosis?
It's all a matter of perspective!
