Hi Rafael and welcome to the forum.

It is possible that you may had IBS in addition to ur Gerd/Acid reflux issues.But when our stools get darker like u mention it could be that u have an ulser and it is bleeding.The darker ( tarrier it get's) this is a better possibility.

I strongly suggest u see ur GI dr and report to him ur issues.

U did not mention if/what meds u may be on for this or ne other health issue.
The meds can help u reduce the acid in ur stomach...try an OTC med until u see ur dr and follow the directions on the package.Also u may want to try the lifestyle changes noted in our Health Pages here on MedHelp.See foods to avoid and other tips.

If you are interested in a chart on stool's Please send me a PM (private message ) and I
will forward the link.

I hope u post updates on ur progress or ne other questions u may have.
