Black stools: Black stools, especially when they or foul-smelling and tarry, can be a sign of internal bleeding in the upper digestive tract. It is possible you may have ulcer or some other source of internal bleeding. You should see your doctor ASAP or go to the emergency room if you feel too sick to make it to that appointment. Good luck.
