Constipation and ulcer

Posted by joshua2341 @joshua2341, Oct 24, 2018

Dear team, I have been constipation and ulcers for over a month. My stool are always in black colour. And sometimes it appears my legs are weak. Most times chest pain. Please help

If your stools are black, you probably have blood in your stool so you need to see a doctor. If you are taking peptobismal for stomach pain, that can also cause black stools.


I agree with jane. See your doctor. Have them check your hemoglobin level. Black stools are an indication that you are losing blood which may explain the weakness you are feeling in your legs


Thanks I will see my doctor tomorrow.
