Orange watery stool? Abdominal crming, gasy, watery orange stool.Some solid stool, lack of energy.

Hello. : Hello. I can’t diagnose the reason for your orange colored stool. Passing orange feces may mean the stool either isn’t absorbing or isn’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 isn’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

Causes of vomite that looks like coffee grounds?

Blood vs. not: A classic description of coffee ground vomiting in medicine is suggestive of bleeding in the upper GI tract, more frequently from an active stomach or duodenal ulcer, however, I do see a lot of people who claim to have had this time of vomiting when in reality no ulcer is found.

Green stools and throwing up green vomit, what's the problem?

Green stools and throwing up green vomit, what's the problem?

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

You : You need medical attention. The coffee ground vomit is likely due to your nose bleed. The blood becomes oxygenated in the GI tract which gave it this appearance. The blood when you blew your nose, is likely to be from the lesion that is the source of your nose bleed. It needs to be determined why you are continuing to bleed vaginally. You appear to be bleeding several different sites. Sometimes, if the nose bleed is not stopping, it might need treatment (like cautery). Please call your doctor this morning to get further instructions. ...Read more
