The pain or discomfort is usually in the lower abdomen. Soft stools with a relatively low daily frequency usually are not indicative of C. diff. In summary, the presence of C. diff. in your stool in itself is not indicative of infection ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Constant abdominal pain relief when passing stool. Mucus in stool and loose stool. Physical exam, blood and stool test were negative. Is it IBS or IBD?
Either or other: Your symptoms are consistent with both irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease among others.

Eat much less solid food until the constipation resolves. Can try suppository or enema too. Try stronger laxative like magnesium citrate. Avoid this problem by eating right, avoid junk food & excess alcohol, eat more fruits & vegetables, add metamucil. See your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hiv eia 17 days (-ve), HIV RNA PCR 33 days (-ve). Hiv chemiluminescence (-ve) after 14 months. After that can spitting blood be caused by hiv?
Not likely: If you are spitting blood something quite serious is going on, but it is not likely due to HIV infection. If you had aids due to HIV (and this would be far too early even if you were infected, which you are not), then some of the opportunistic infections or tumors due to immune suppression might cause hemoptysis (blood in sputum). Go see a doctor. ...Read more

Blood in stool: Blood in the stool is not normal and needs to needs to be explained. A normal colonoscopy does not rule out bleeding from the upper gastrointestinal tract.

Lots of folks have white junk on their tongue -- tried dental flossing it off? Read about somatization. ...Read more
Possibly yes: Norovirus is one of the most easily transmitted of all viruses. You can catch it just by being in the same room when an infected person vomits. Simply smelling feces probably wouldn't do it -- but it's so easily transmitted that it might be possible.

Virus: If this is a viral intestinal tract infection causing diarrhea or loose stools, the color change is to be expected due to more rapid transit of stools through the intestinal tract and would be a temporary situation. Disorders of liver, pancreas or gall bladder can also cause these color changes. If bm's don't revert to normal after several days, consult your physician or gastroenterologist . ...Read more
Stomach flu 2 days ago vomiting and dieherra only took gravol I stopped getting symptoms but now have dark stools could it be from gravol or flu?
Several possibilitie: dark stool is usually not a symptom of a GI virus. If the stool is black or dark red in color and has a foul odor, it could be a sign of G.I. bleeding. If this is the case, seek help immediately. Although Gravol does not cause dark stools, several G.I. medications can, including Pepto-Bismol or bismuth- containing medications. If it persists, you should see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
