Black Stool
I've been having black stool lately, along with lower abdominal pains, loss of appetite, and sore throat. What could be wrong?

Dark stools can happen when you take pepto bismal and if you drink a lot of wine.  You need to be seen by a doctor.  Dark stools without the dietary items i mentioned and with you not feeling well could posssibly be due to internal bleeding.  Please don't wait to get attention.

Might be diverticulitis....if it's been happening for awhile you should have it checked out with a gastro doc. Black stools = internal bleeding!

The medical name for black coloured motions caused by intestinal bleeding is "MELENA".  You might want to google this so that you are better informed for your gastro doctor.
