Blood?: Are you referring to bleeding in the stool? I'm entirely unaware of that complaint in patients taking Klonopin (as far as anybody I've ever treated throughout training and practice). One source I'm referencing fails to list this in their side effects for 1-10% of the time so if it does happen it's more rare than finding intelligent politicians. I cannot find any source listing blood in stool ...Read more

Hard 2 say: But there are many other non-blood causes of dark stools (meds, diet, etc) . Fortunately it is easy to tell by bringing a small sample to your md to test for blood. If blood is found a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy could be performed to rule out a source of bleeding. If no blood, may be dietary. See a doctor. ...Read more

Black spots/sprecks in stool, stool is not completely black but i can see many small spots which don't look normal. Stool color is also different.

Fecal impaction: You should see your primary doctor. Fecal impaction, constipation could be explanation for your symptoms. If you have bleeding ( when stool could be black/dark red) colonoscopy can help understand the source of bleeding. Cancer/cancer bleeding unlikely at age 21. Another test: stool for parasites. Thank you for question. ...Read more

I observe some small black things like black seeds in my stool today and my stool was light yellow with full of black seeds it was my first time?

Stool color: is highly variable and often depends on diet. Tiny black flecks in a yellow stool perhaps indicates that you may have eaten something spiced with turmeric or curry. The tiny seeds may be undigested nigella seeds or black sesame seeds. No cause for alarm. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

I've been having small black flecks in my stool for months. can this be attributed to gerd?

I've been having small black flecks in my stool for months. can this be attributed to gerd?

Probably not gerd: gerd should not cause black flecks in your stool although if you are taking medication for GERD it may cause your stool to change color. If you notice actual blood or your stool looks like tar or is black in color then it may indicate that you are loosing blood in your stool. You should see your doctor if you are loosing weight or having abdominal pain as well ...Read more
