My child has had 103 for 3 days now. Was diagnosed with a virus and tonsils were swollen. Now has had a green slimy stool. Should I be worried?

No: When children are ill and diet is off, it is not uncommon to have a change in the bowel movements. The green color comes from bile that passes through the intestine too rapidly to be changed by bacteria to yellows and browns. Do consult with your child's doctor if there is bright red blood or severe abdominal cramping. ...Read more

Off & on i'll get stomach ache. Bit side discomfort. Nausea. Doc said ibs. Stool is always soft mushy. Green-brown. Slimy & green mucus. This ibs?

Off & on i'll get stomach ache. Bit side discomfort. Nausea. Doc said ibs. Stool is always soft mushy. Green-brown. Slimy & green mucus. This ibs?

Wellll....: The presence of mucus concerns me - could be a sign of inflammatory bowel disease. Ibs is more of a description than a disease - there's no diagnostic test or treatment, and is usually tagged to people who have any number of vague GI symptoms but no definitive diagnosis. I suggest good hydration, a balanced diet, and some yogurt. Consider a GI consult for the stool mucus. Good luck. ...Read more

For 3 days have constant stomach ache, but normal bowel movements & no nausea. Then today stool was covered in NEON green slime, sticky pellets?

Black white and red: Are bad stool colors. Green is not concerning. Not sure exactly if it's just bile mixed with what ever you have eaten but your stomach ache is more a concern if prolonged and associated with those other colors. There is a wide differential for stomachaches in a 19 yo woman. Consult with your doctor and consider whether or not you have been using excessive amounts of NSAIDs for any reason. ...Read more
