Get checked: Constipation, abdominal pain, black and white spots in the stool are very vague non-specific symptoms. Alt of 120 is concerning as it is high. If you drink alcohol, it may be related to that, so stop and get it rechecked. If that's not the case, i'd press on and have your doc do further work up - first recheck it. If still elevated, i'd go with hepatitis panel, liver ultrasound, etc. ...Read more

I regularly see black or white seed-like spots in my stool. A stool sample has come back normal. Could this be from Metamucil?

Probably not worms: Any change in your diet will cause changes to your stool. There is a good chance that you are not completely chewing the pine nuts. ...Read more

Get a new doctor: The fact that you are asking a doctor's forum stating that no doctors are helping you is telling. You are clearly upset with your symptoms. I suggest you start anew with a fresh physician and begin at square one. See where it goes from there. ...Read more

What would cause recurring small white spots / flakes in stool that are almost like seeds and don't seem to be linked to any particular food?

?medicines: Besides foods, the most common reason is medicines that have small capsules within a capsule that enables delivery of the medicine beyond the stomach to avoid harsh acid. There are many medicines, including over the counter or even dietary supplements that use microcapsules. However, if with pain, nausea, blood, fever, or recent change in bowel habits, would suggest following up with a doctor ...Read more

Likely nothing: abnormal. Constipation and mucus in stool may explain both dark and light spots. Drink enough water so that your urine is watery, colorless and odorless. Increase your intake of fiber. You may wish to take a fiber laxative like Metamucil to relieve the constipation. ...Read more
