Stool is a light brown color sometimes upper abdominal pain occurs?

Light brown stool: Light brown or tan colored stool on the soft side can occur with more rapid transit of fecal matter through the intestinal tract. This can be due to irritable bowel syndrome, intolerance to certain foods, viral intestinal tract infections. Occasionally gall bladder or liver disorders are the problem. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. ...Read more

Having severe upper abdominal pain before having a bowel movement. Before today I haven't gone in a week. Is this something severe?

Having severe upper abdominal pain before having a bowel movement. Before today I haven't gone in a week. Is this something severe?

Need more info...: It is definitely not normal to have severe pain at any time. If it is related to a bowel movement, I would think about intestinal blockage. Your doctor will want to know if you are at least passing gas, as this will indicate partial versus full blockage (which must be ruled out). Some people can go for several weeks without bowel movement, but pain is not normal. See your doctor for eval ASAP. ...Read more

This morning I had a bowel movement that was white with severe upper abdominal pain that went straight through to my back. ER or Dr on Monday?

To ER is Human: ER. White stool isn't exactly clean stool, it indicates a blockage in your bile duct that could get real serious. There are other causes of a light colored stool but this one can get out of hand. You already have severe pain so don't wait for it to get better. It probably won't.The ER will be more efficient in deciding what you have, You probably have a great private doctor and they will contact him ...Read more

Having stabbing upper abdominal pain with fever and hard green stool. Visited a GP and he told me that is due to too much gastric acid. Is that true?

Having stabbing upper abdominal pain with fever and hard green stool. Visited a GP and he told me that is due to too much gastric acid. Is that true?

Unlikely: Upper abdominal pain is nonspecific, however too much gastric acid is not the cause. The hard stools could be from relative dehydration. The color could be from something you're eating. Abdominal pain could be from ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, gallstones, or inflammation of the lower esophagus. A GI doctor may be a better place to go for the symptoms. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Upper abdominal pain, yellow skin (hands, feet, face, eyes are white), yellow loose stools. Bilirubin normal, hida, abdominal ct, stool tests clean. This done by gi. What areas to investigate further?

Liver tests, enzymes: It's important to do liver function tests to check for hepatic injury or involvement as this can help discern the cause of the pain and yellow skin. Enzymes, especially pancreatic enzymes are also useful to help rule out pancreatitis, etc. There are other important markers, like hepatitis antigen/antibody (s), and anti-mitochondrial antibodies for primary biliary cirrhosis. Liver biopsy also. ...Read more

Extremely painful bowel movements for 2 days everything I try to eat or drink goes right thru me nausea abdominal pain and pressure gi think adhesions?

I think: That you may have "simple" diarrhea or a viral GI infection (eg Norovirus) PLUS HEMORRHOIDS!!
Try taking an OTC anti-diarrhea medication (EG example Imodium (loperamide) AD) PLUS a Hemorrhoid Cream!

I am experiencing gastrointestinal disturbances, diarrhea (quality: bloody), painful bowel movements, blood in toilet, anal pain, low back pain, blood on toilet tissue, abdominal pain (generalized) (quality: sensation of tearing pain) (severity: moderat

Gastroenterologist: I recommend an evaluation by a gastroenterologist. Your symptoms may be caused by irritable bowel syndrome combined with hemorrhoids or an anal fissure, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis or diverticulosis of the colon, or even a growth in the colon. In the meantime apply warm soaks to the anus, insert rectal glycerin suppositories and apply anusol ointment for the anal discomfort. ...Read more

Thin stools for a week mixed with very soft mushy stool. Last week, stools were thick. Feeling of not feeling empty. Obstruction? No abdominal pain.

Thin stools for a week mixed with very soft mushy stool. Last week, stools were thick. Feeling of not feeling empty. Obstruction? No abdominal pain.

Not obstruction: Complete obstruction is when there is a blockage of your intestines that prevents any stool (or even gas) to go through, causing stool/food to build up resulting in severe pain, nausea and vomiting. Obstruction can be partial/incomplete but it is usually very painful. You may be constipated, would recommend eating lots of fiber. You can use laxatives if needed. See your doctor if you're worse. ...Read more
