Melenic specks?: Dark-colored stools 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. Persistent melena esp. With dyspeptic symptoms however warrants md visit. ...Read more

Yes, possibly...: Or you don't drink enough water. The antihistamine you are on could contribute also. Constipation is something that can cause many problems down the road--diverticulitis, bowel perforation. Best to always have a goal to never poop rocks or pebbles! i like MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) because it is safe (draws water into the colon), doesn't taste like anything (mix in any fluid), and doesn't cause rebound constipation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Orange watery stool? Abdominal crming, gasy, watery orange stool.Some solid stool, lack of energy.
Hello. : Hello. I canâ€™t diagnose the reason for your orange colored stool. Passing orange feces may mean the stool either isnâ€™t absorbing or isnâ€™t coming in contact with enough bile salt. This can happen if the stool is transiting too quickly through the colon. As a result of moving so rapidly, fluid is not be adequately reabsorbed through the colon which results in liquid feces. Sometimes the problem can be that bile isnâ€™t getting through the bile ducts (i.e., like gallstones). Diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, gallstones & inflammation of the bile ducts are just a few possible reasons for orange stool. If you have been ingesting a lot of antacids that contain aluminum, that can also cause orange stools. Suggest you consult with your doctor on this one. ...Read more

Occasional floating stool, slowly sinks. Some air bubbles. Stool is brown soft and formed. Normal colonoscopy, CT scan and stool tests. Should i worry?
Don't worry: Floating stools are caused by foods that you eat that cause gas production or could be from malabsorption/ not absorbing essential nutrients causing them to be passed in the stool and making the stool float .
