Clay colored stool..: Though what you described is chronic in nature- hence i would not be immediately worried about it . Your anxiety about it is worry enough to have it evaluated sooner rather than later (rule of thumb- if one asks a question about clay-colored stool, i'd recommend that they see their doctor to figure what is going on).
