Black stools

I had black stools this morning with very foul odor.
I take pantoloc
I have no other symptoms, feeling good
I also had blueberry pie (lots of bluebberies init) 2 nights ago. Also, the water around the stool looked a bit blue. So i really want to believe the blueberries are the culprit but concerned about the foul smell (unusual smell) and that i take pantoloc.
I will call doctor tomorrow but wonder if anyone ever had black stinky stools from eating blueberries before.

Thanks

Re: Black stools

Definitely could be the blueberries. If it was due to internal bleeding, it would probably be staining the bowl red, not blue.

Still, better safe than sorry.
