I am a 21-year old healthy (as far as I know) male. I live a busy life as a chef and student, but I manage my time so I know my symptoms are not due to stress. For the past 3 weeks, I have been having diarrhea every day. It is usually completely liquid with few signs of anything solid (food pieces, etc), foul smelling, and oddly yellow-ish in color. The times when I have had a solid bowel movement, it is because I have taken Kaopectate. On those occasions, the fecal matter is black, almost gritty, and again foul smelling. I have not changed my diet within the past few months, nor have I traveled anywhere. I would have normally seen a doctor after the second or third day, but I don't currently have a GP to see. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
