My stool was half black and half brown and it had a lot of stringy substance all over it & also smelled bad is everything okay with me?

My stool was half black and half brown and it had a lot of stringy substance all over it & also smelled bad is everything okay with me?

Maybe & maybe not: Dark-colored stools may result from iron supplements, foods you eat (like a lot of spinach), substances (like peptobismol), but most significantly suggests bleeding. When blood is denatured by acid in your stomach, as from ulcers, stools will turn tarry ("melena"). Blood may also be ingested from nose bleeds, bleeding gums... Persistent melena (without obvious cause) & symptoms warrants evaluation ...Read more
