In brief: Diet or ?
At 33 yrs old i would suspect diet caused change in your stool color.
But upper gi(the stomach and upper small intestine)bleeding can cause black stool.Easy to find out-see your dr and ask for a "hemacult" like test.You put a bit of your stool on a special paper and we test for iron(a sign of blood).This will direct us forward.Do not ignore changes in your body!
