lately my stool has either been something similar to diarrhea or ill formed, porous 'sausages'. its usually either dark, almost black, or a light brown colour; not what i consider to be the 'normal' colour of poo. sometimes there is also what appears to be mucus. i also sometimes feel quite bloated.
i'm quite worried since my brother has crohn's disease, but i don't share any symptoms with him such as crippling pains, lethargy, vomiting, sensitivity to certain foods.
anyone have any idea what these symptoms could relate to? i have a good diet,i exercise and have never suffered any form of digestive ailment before.
