For the past 14 days my stool is coming out black / reddish type. It has a red appearance. But it is not like the colour of blood. I believe it is not blood stool. But it is black and something reddish. Only the first part of the stool is coming out black. I mean the first hard part of the stool is black but not the entire stool. First 4 inches of the hard stool is black but later the entire stool is yellow the normal type. I had been suffering Irritable Bowel Syndrome since 3 years. I have to potty twice in the morning. Sometimes thrice. I drink 3 glass water in 8 am then go to potty. It takes 45 min. Then breakfast 9 am and within 2 min again I go to potty. I also suffers frequent urination 16 times a day since age 15. I drink 3-3.5 lit water daily. I am 26. My whole abdomen is paining since 100 days. In ultrasound a 4.9 mm right kidney stone found. I can not tolerate the pain. Since 100 days all day long I was sitting on a chair because of pain. I can not lean forward or bend, can not work, can not sit on the floor, can not walk a small distance because it increases my pain. If I lie on the bed then the pain decreases. I consulted 4 doctors but they all think I have anxiety nothing else. But my pain speak itself that I am in deep trouble. My future will be spoiled if every doctor take my pain for granted. They do so because all my reports BP, RBS, thyroid, x-ray, are ok. My urine has no infection. But a little mucus in my stool. It is of different in shape i.e. Hard, jelly and sometimes liquid. If I die, what do they care? It does not matter to them if I live or not.

Hi. It seems to b a problem of IBS. Any black stools are due to blood only. I think your IBS is accompanied by peptic ulcer disease also. You need few investigations, medications and precautions. - avoid stress and anxiety, sleep properly - eat food on proper time and avoid heavy meals at lunch and dinner - eat food with high fibre content - avoid alcohol, tobacco, smoking etc -avoid spicy and outside food you may require a endoscopy, colonoscopy and some blood tests. For medications and investigations you can consult online. Thanks.

Hi I am a 22 year old female. From childhood itself, I was having so much of stomach problems like pain, diarrhea, constipation etc. My mom told that alternate constipation & diarrhea issue please started when I was just 20 days old. I was unable to walk speedly & run from chilhood because a cramping stomach pain develops. I was unable to participate in dance, sports and such heavy exercises. We consulted many doctors including gastros. Done ct scan, barium test, endoscopy, colonoscopy, capsule endoscopy etc. Ulcer and kidney stone was diagnosed when I was 18 years. It has got cured. But this pain while running and all is still there. It became worst within last 1 year after the completion of my degree project. It was done in a hilly region and was really tough for me. Now the stool is normal daily. I am 158 cms tall & weight is just 44 kgs. I was losing my weight because of contipation & diarrhea. But since it is fine now I started gaining weight from 36 kg to 44 kg. But stomach pain while doing jobs which require little power is the main problem for me now. There is a please tenderness in the right, left and top side(most tenderness) of my tummy button. One doctor told that it is due to weak muscles & muscle spasms. I can' t even stretch my body now. Please help me to solve this problem. Thank you for showing patience to read my problem

Gall stone size 10mm no problem with it. Can it be removed without surgery? Non surgical treatments.

If you do not have any problem, you can just observe it by usg every 6 months and get it operated if symptoms develop. There is no way to remove it but surgery can be avoided in asymptomatic gall stone.

You probably have an irritable bowel or some mild infection of gut. Its because of exaggerated gastrocolic reflex. Please eat a little less than your fill. Take probiotics like enterogermina, lactobacilli powder. You are lucky you don't have any other symptom.

Dear Please follow the following to get rid of your existing problems. General eating tips Your IBS symptoms may also improve by: Having regular meals and taking your time when eating Not missing meals or leaving long gaps between eating Drinking at least eight cups of fluid a day – particularly water and other non-caffeinated drinks, such as herbal tea Restricting your tea and coffee intake to a maximum of three cups a day Reducing the amount of alcohol and fizzy drinks you drink Reducing your intake of resistant starch (starch that resists digestion in the small intestine and reaches the large intestine intact), which is often found in processed or re-cooked foods Limiting fresh fruit to three portions a day – a suitable portion would be half a grapefruit or an apple If you have diarrhoea, avoiding sorbitol, an artificial sweetener found in sugar-free sweets, including chewing gum and drinks, and in some diabetic and slimming products If you have wind (flatulence) and bloating, it may help to eat oats (such as oat-based breakfast cereal or porridge) and linseeds (up to one tablespoon a day)
