Rarely do I drink in excess but last nght I had one too many glasses of wine. Diarrhea all morning and now a pain like period cramps in my uterus area?

Other causes of black stool are taking iron supplements or peptobismol. If you have any weakness or concerns about gi bleeding, go to the hospital emergency room for prompt care. ...Read more
