Bile: A viral infection or food poisoning may be the cause. Green stool is usually caused by rapid transit time in the gut, which can happen when an infection makes the gut mucosa more permeable to water or prevents absorption of your intake. Bile refluxing from the duodenum is enough to make vomit green. Hope you're feeling better -- if this is clearly not a mild self-limited illness, get seen. ...Read more
Lots of gas, bloating and green stools. Am taking a multi vitamin, the occasional antacid and codfish oil. Could these be causing the green stools?
Yes: Codfish oil(cod liver oil) can speed up the transit of food thru the gastrointestinal tract if taken in too high a dose. Bile is green in color. As it travels thru the gut it's color is changed, eventually to brown. Greenish color can be the result of intestinal contents not remaining in the gut long enough to turn brown. Should return to normal color if codfish oil is stopped. SEE:abt.cm/144EnVu ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Gastroenteritis: Sounds like you have gastroenteritis. If it gets to the point where you are unable to keep fluids down, you will likely have to go to the ER to get medications and some fluids into you. I would switch to Gatorade to help you with your electrolytes that you are likely losing and hopefully it will pass in the next 12-24 hours and decrease in severity. If it doesn't, go to the ER for further eval. ...Read more

Stomach flu, vomiting and diarrhea all thursday night. Drank lots of water, vomited more of course, but noticed green bits like mucus or chives in it?
Nothing serious: The color of vomit or diarrhea, or the appearance of bits and chunks of various sorts (mostly partly digested food), says nothing about the cause or severity of the problem. The main exception is that obvious blood is a concern. Otherwise, don't worry about it. Most viral gastroenteritis ("flu" is a misnomer) is caused by norovirus and is most severe for 24-48 hr, then should improve. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Im 27. Have had IBS-C. Now drinking lemon balm tea each morning, stools are green. No diarrhea or pain. If no diarrhea, can feces have rapid transit??
A stool could: still be moist & on softer side with rapid transit. It isn't necessary that feces be extremely frequent or liquid-like for rapid transit. Unless the stool is green due to food you are eating or medications - green stool may be an indicator for rapid transit. It is all relative. In other words, feces could "fly" rapidly through the colon or might just be sped up a bit. Take care. ...Read more
