Small black balls in poop?

I pooped out little black balls. Lots of them. I had diarrhea all day. My first stool had no black balls, my second did. I've had lots of black berries lately, and ate fish (tilapia) for dinner a few nights ago.. I wouldn't think it was the black berries because iv'e always eaten them and have never seen this before. I'm very healthy/ young (I run cross country for my high school- 5+ miles a day). Just a little worried as to what this is ( read that little black balls in poop might point towards blood problems). please help me?

Re: Small black balls in poop?

It was probably the black berries-- Some times all the food coloring is not changed by your digestive enzymes.

This can happen readily with diarrhea.

I would not worry unless it continues!!

Re: Small black balls in poop?

Hi, Leave the Blackberrys of and see how things go in a few days.
Eating a lot of them would certainly give you the trots. Too much fruit can be as bad as too little. If you see any blood then get it checked out, but I feel sure its those darned blackberrys. Good Luck, Solofelix.
