My daughter is constantly having green poop. She is 2 and complains of stomach aches. Could it be her stomach causing the green poop?

Normal variation: The main agent adding color to the poo is the material made by the liver called bile. It starts out a dark green and goes thru the yellows to brown depending on the influences of various factors in the intestines. Rapid transit thru the system, as may occur with diarrhea or breast feeding may have a greenish yellow or yellow appearance. The slower, more likely browner. ...Read more

Why is my 4 year olds poo green? For the past 2 days she's been going to the toilet a lot but hasn't complained of a stomach ache.

Why is my 4 year olds poo green? For the past 2 days she's been going to the toilet a lot but hasn't complained of a stomach ache.

HARD TO SAY: It could be that she may be having rapid transit through the gut for some reason, perhaps a virus. It's possible she's been consuming some food product with green or blue food coloring. As long as she does not feel too poorly, and is taking in liquids and food, I wouldn't be too concerned. But, if it continues or she shows other signs of illness, see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Why does my stomach ache get worse as I poop? Is this normal?

Why does my stomach ache get worse as I poop? Is this normal?

Intestinal nerves: Nerve fibers in your intestine can be irritated as the intestine contracts and moves to get the 'poop' out. That is probably what is causing your pains when you have a bm. Try increasing fluids and fiber to help regulate your stools and maybe the pains will improve over time. See GI if they do not. Best wishes. ...Read more

You: You could be dealing with a mild case of a stomach flu (gastroenteritis). Symptoms usually resolve in about a week or so. Make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids and eating a bland diet avoiding greasy, spicy, and acidic foods. If your symptoms do not resolve soon schedule a visit with your primary care provider.
I hope you are better soon. ...Read more

Every morning I have a painful stomach ache that wakes me up to go use the restroom and I poop black liquid, what could be wrong?

Go in now for eval.: Black liquid feces is not normal. In the setting of significant abdominal distress, this needs to be evaluated. Could be bleeding somewhere in the gastrointestinal tract. There are also other potential reasons, but this should be evaluated on a prompt basis. ...Read more

Nonspecific: While there area my diagnoses that can cause blood on the paper after wiping or blood in the toilet, the two most likely would be hemorrhoids or anal fissure. You should however have it checked by your doctor. ...Read more

I have raisin bran every night cause it makes me poo in morning, added yogurt to diet and have lots of gas, and stomach ache in morning- not lactose.?

Yogurt contains milk: Some people are quite sensitive to milk products - and as much as I like yogurt, you might want to try stopping consumption of that and seeing how your symptoms are...If your symptoms improve, then you might want to try Lactaid or something like that to help you digest the lactose in milk. You could make your own yogurt with soy milk if you want the benefit of those 'probiotics'...capsules also OK ...Read more

Fiber: You probably need to see your doctor if this has been happening for a awhile (weeks to months). Your doctor will want to know how long this has been happening and what makes it better or worse.
For many people just paying attention to what they eat will help. Avoid a lot of soda and stick to water. Try 8 glasses per day. Maintain a high fiber diet. Don't strain on the toilet. ...Read more

Retractile testes?: Need to know age for potential risk factors.

So I just got fingered in the butt for the first time today, and since then, I've had a stomach ache and there is some slight bleeding when I poop. Also I've had the feeling of needing to poop all day even though I don't need to. Should I be woried?

Yes: It's not safe, as one's anus is not designed for repeated in/out, in/out of fingers, penises, etc... Like in any big city, some streets are one-way and some streets are two-way. A vagina is created or evolved to be a two-way street (penis in, baby out). The gastrointestinal tract is designed to be one-way, with an opening on each end. Food goes in the mouth, and the brown stuff goes out the butt. ...Read more

See your doctor: Significant stomach pain that doesn't go away for a week should be evaluated by your doctor- there are lots of possible causes.

Hi, My dad is 78 years old and he is getting stomach ache from past 1 month and keep going to poop 3 - 4 times per day. Is it related to liver cancer?

Hi, My dad is 78 years old and he is getting stomach ache from past 1 month and keep going to poop 3 - 4 times per day. Is it related to liver cancer?

Need more info: Does he have a known diagnosis of cancer? If he has not been checked by a physician, then he should go and see his doctor for a physical examination and some lab tests. In an older person, cancer is a serious consideration but pain in stomach can also be caused by other reasons like an Ulcer in the stomach. Get him to have a medical check up soon. ...Read more

I have a stomach problem for 6 days. I have stomach ache, slight cramps, bloating, gassy feeling. I poop somewhat but cant fart alot only a little.

I have a stomach problem for 6 days. I have stomach ache, slight cramps, bloating, gassy feeling. I poop somewhat but cant fart alot only a little.

Infection: With 6 days of duration, the majority of times these constellation of symptoms are secondary to an infection (either viral or bacterial) even in the absence of diarrhea. If this is the first time this is happening to you, I would suggest to stay hydrated, keep a light diet for now and monitor your temperature, your belly pain and your stool. You might also consider a virtual consult. ...Read more

What if I have flu? & how to tell flu vs other viral inf.? I've felt bad 2 days: nausea/stomach ache, soft poop, chills/trembling, tired. How bad?

Influenza: Usually, if you have the flu you know it! Symptoms usually include fever to 102- usually of a very rapid onset- where a person could remember the exact moment he felt ill. Other symptoms include muscle aches, headache, chills, cough. While other viruses could mimic these symptoms they are usually not as severe or of such rapid onset. ...Read more

Pain in chest, throat, jaw, nape, strong bitter taste, numbing left arm, stomach ache, nausea, feeling of want to poop. Heart attack or acid reflux? Confused.

Pain in chest, throat, jaw, nape, strong bitter taste, numbing left arm, stomach ache, nausea, feeling of want to poop. Heart attack or acid reflux? Confused.

We are too!: No one symptom definitively indicates a heart attack is or is not in progress, but many people make the fatal mistake of waiting out atypical heart pain. "Heart pain" is often indistinguishable from esophageal, pericardial, mediastinal, gastric, & chest wall distress. However, don't ignore chest pain--get evaluated ASAP. ...Read more

My boyfriend was not able to have a bowel movement for about a week, now he's going constantly and has a horrible stomach ache and nausea. Any thoughts?

Obstipation: Sounds like severe constipation. You'll get colicky pain, as your small & large instestine contract to propel the stool. Eventually it causes a secretory response & loose stool occurs. If its only constipation he should feel better w/n hours. If he has abdominal pain that last for hours & continuous loose stool, then it's more then just constipation and he needs to be evaluated esp w/ fever. ...Read more
