Re: black specks in stool?? does anyone

sounds like might be something you're eating, or maybe even undigested pieces of food. If you go to the dr. they will schedule you for a colonoscopy and you can easily find out what it is. How old are you? If you aren't very old, I wouldn't worry too much, but, if you are older, might want to get colonoscopy just to put mind at ease. Lots of things can cause stuff in your stool. I just had a colonoscopy yesterday because of white stringy things in my stool that looked like worms. I also have had black things in my stool but they are bigger, not small. Like pieces of dark food. I worried myself sick over the colonoscopy which turned out to be nothing bad. The prep is the worst part. (getting yourself cleaned out, enima's etc. ) so if you're worried see a gastronologist to make yourself feel better. : ) Good luck!

I have the same thing from time to time. I have seen a gastro-doc about this and other stuff like cramping, flat stools etc. Had the colonoscopy the other day and all is fine. I would not worry too much about it, but go get checked to be sure. I was told its IBS. Im male 35
