Black stool: Did you use peptobismol? or iron products? That can cause black stool if not and stool is actually black go to ER as may have gastritis/ulcer with bleeding that needs immediate attention. if in right lower abdomen there is concern for appendicitis Go to ER today

More info?: The first thing one thinks of is gallbladder but more info is needed. How long does it last? Anything make it better? Anything make it worse? Does it radiate to your back? Or shoulder? Have you had any surgery ? How long has it been there? Have you tried any medications? Did they work? Did you injure yourself? Pulled muscle etc? Has anyone done any studies? Cough? Fevers?
