Black Stools: I would consult a gastroenterologist if possible. What you describe sounds like an episode of GI bleeding. At your age, I would be concerned about a bacterial infection, or some other pathogen. Regardless, I would follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

For 5 days I have been experiencing intermittent stomach pain, slight chills and loose stools mainly after eating,  constant nausea, some burping.

See a doctor soon: You should see a gastrointestinal doctor very soon or even be cleared in the er. Stomach ulcers, gastritis, esophagitis, kidney stones with or without infection and appendicitis should all be ruled out. With the chills, one would wonder about a fever or blood infection. Diarrhea makes an intestinal infection a possibility. Get the necessary blood work, exam, x-rays and stool and urine cultures. ...Read more

I've had stomach pain & loose stools for 3 wks.Had an endoscopy and found 2 erythematous spots at the atrum.What does this mean?Should I be concerned?

Not necessarily: It means the endoscopist saw some reddish coloration of the lining of the distal stomach. This may or may not be significant. The finding can indicate gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) due to an infectious or other process. But the observation of "erythema" is subjective(the area may seem normal to another MD) and a biopsy of the area may be normal. Gastritis is a histologic diagnosis ...Read more
