Intestinal issues


This depends on how long, and whether there is blood in the stool. If it's a short term issue, and everything else is normal, then it may just be a stomach virus, causing mild irritation. However, if there is blood, or it's a prolonged issue, then you should consult your doc immediately for evaluation and discussion

Most likely


COnstipation due to dehydration causing a dark concentrated urine as the body tries to avoid losing any more fluid. The dripping stool may be liquid stool seeping around a fecal impaction. You need to see a doctor to confirm and get proper treatment. Start by drinking lots of caffeine free/ alcohol free fluid like gatorade up to 120 ounces per day.

What does it mean when your poop is tan and brown?

Answered by:

Likely


Eating anything could affect the color and character of your stools. Tan and brown stool by far is the normal color, due to normal degradation of bilirubin in the digestive tract.

IBD


As a 20 yo, my first concern would be inflammatory bowel disease, especially ulcerative colitis. It's unlikely that this is a malignant condition, but you really need to be seen soon for GI evaluation. Don't delay, and good luck.

 Diet Feces Bowel movement

Its Christmas!!! LOL


NO really, it is usually some dietary change you have made, as long as the stool is fairly normal consistency - the color changes sometimes dramatically with changes in your diet. Should go back to normal in a day or two... as long as it is not BLACK and Tarry - that would be worrisome! have a great Holiday!!

Green foods or bile


Either green foods, or bile (digestive juices) which passes through the gut without getting used up or digested can cause a greenish color in your stool. If you are not having pain, diarrhea, or other difficulties, it is nothing to worry about.
