black and white spots in stool

Constipation, 120 ALT liver enzymes, stomach pains, black and white spots in stool for 3 months. Im a 30 yr/old male. Doc doesn't seem concerned. Help?

Get checked

Constipation
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.

Might b TMI-I noticed in my normal size stool a white spot (looks like a light boogar,) & a string of something light.Mucous? Is it Serious? Danger?

No need to worry

Feces
When it comes to stool you really only have to worry if you find black tarry stools, blood in your stool, bloody mucus in your stool, or have severe diarrhea or constipation. Narrowing down of the diameter of your stool could be another concern. However, The finding that you have made should not be of concern. Best wishes. Also, when it comes to medical issues there is no TM I :)

Small red spot in 2 yo diaper today. No blood in stool. Other day took rectal temp. Mucus w/ little red on it. Acting fine. Constipated often-worry?

OK unless recurring

Feces
Even if it is blood, a small amount, one event would not be anything to worry about. It could be due to the thermometer causing some mild trauma or constipation. It could also not even be blood. I would have it checked if it is recurring or if there is a larger amount of blood.

Do black spots in stool mean blood?

Sometimes...

Low_blood_pressure
Black spotting may result from iron supplements, foods you eat (like a lot of spinach), substances (like PeptoBismol), but most significantly suggests bleeding. When blood is denatured by acid in your stomach, as from ulcers, stools will turn tarry ("melena"). Blood may also be ingested from nose bleeds, bleeding gums. Silver-colored stool suggests bleeding from the biliary tree. Get checked pls.
