Stomach Trouble: Black Feces and Stomach Pain

Hi,


I am having trouble with my stomach and I do not know what to do......

For the last 5 days or so, I have been having black feces, completely black.... And, I have been having alot of trouble with my stomach, everything I eat is making it hurt, then it will burn really bad... I will get severe pains often.....
I did not think much of it at first till the black feces, because I do have irritable bowel, but I have never had the black feces....

I was wonderin if this is something anyone has heard of before....
I do have a doctor's appointment made I was just wondering for a heads up....

Thanks

I would see a doctor immediately. Black faeces usually means blood is present, which is never a good sign! Could indicate a stomach ulcer, or something else.

Re: Stomach Trouble: Black Feces and Stomach Pain

the above poster is right.see your doc,today if possible.do they look like coffee ground like consistancy?(your BMs)if so,what you are expelling is digested blood.this is black when it goes thru the GI tract and usually starts with the stomach.if you are also having abdominal pain,this is also not a good sign.you NEED to see your doc today.if for some reason(although after telling them your total symptoms i cannot imagine they would make you wait)your docs office cannot get you in today,go to the ER.you are actively bleeding from somewhere and this needs to be evaluated soon.good luck and please let us know how this all goes.take care.FB

I dont mean to scare you but...my father in law had black stool and he ended up having colon cancer. You need to go to the doc ASAP!! I mean it there is no kidding around with this stuff.

Re: Stomach Trouble: Black Feces and Stomach Pain

I would go to the doctor's office A.S.A.P. black feces is a sign of blood in the stool. Don't mean to scare you but you have to hurry to the sawbones on this one. Good luck Madame.

They are all right my Mother died of colon cancer 24 years ago on x-mas eve she had the same thing happen to her just 2 weeks before she died. They didn't even know what it was until after her death. I am sorry if this has scared you but please go in right now. Good luck

It doesn't have to be cancer, by the way. It can be ulcers.

But it IS a GI bleed, somewhere. No doubt. Go to the doctor.
