    Question Dark stools


    I just took a dump and some of my crap was black. I forgot what this means. Maybe I ate some bad chicken or something. I don't know. I was wondering if anyone can chime in on this. Thanks. Oh I have been using Ephedrine for quite a while now.

    black could also mean you might have some bleeding somewhere in the GI tract, like an ulcer..

    Black and tarry generally means bleeding somewhere in the upper-middle GI tract. Seeing red blood in stools is generally the result of hemorrhaging in the lower GI tract/rectum area-

    OR a samurai sword being lodged in your lower abdomen can do this as well.

    Interesting. I feel alright so I'm not too worried. Would a possible ulcer cause me some pain?

    Luckily I didn't see any tar or red blood. I'll keep an eye on things.

    lol I don't think it was the samurai sword... :P

    If it's a one time thing, it's probably something you ate or drank. If this occurs consistently, you need to get a lab stool done to rule in/out blood from gi bleed.

    If you took pepto that will make your stool dark.
