for the past couple of days i've had a slight upper and lower abdomenal pain and have been bloated especially after meals. So, I made an appointment with my doctor next week for a complete physical. Today, I noticed that my stool was literally green (and I'm not kidding). I'm alittle freaked out about this. Does anyone have an idea as to what this could be???

Very Nervous Sara

Ahhh I had the SAME exact thing happen to me the other day. I just figured it was from eating a ton of those blue corn chips the night before...don't ask me why it would be green, my logic is questionable <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif">
I just went to a gastrointestinologist today and he thinks I have IBS because I have frequent D pretty much every night after dinner. He also wants to mess around with my colon...I dunno, it sounded nasty.
Anyway, if you find out what the deal is with the green thing, let me know. I totally forgot to ask today. Just know you aren't alone!!

I have had green as well for no explaination. I also get it when I eat blue candy. Oreos made my stools black and I almost made a doctors appointment thinking "oh boy, this is it", but I found looking at symptoms of colon cancer that one of the signs is black stool (blood) and then it said below that eating oreo cookies causes false alarms. So I was relieved. I have also had yellow and white stools. I can't wait till it comes out purple.

My husband and I got green stools once from a devils food choclate cake. One day later I got it and my hubby did to and that is the only thing we had that was the same. Weird!!!
I have heard people say on here green stools are a result of your body releasing toxins. I think that may vary.

Hmmmm by toxins could that include alcohol?? I'm a VERY light drinker, but I had a bit more then I usually do right along with those blue corn chips....it was only two drinks but maybe that was enough to throw my system off. Interesting!
