Is black poo bad? I just got done having a week of it. At first I thought it was from eating blue berries, but even after I stopped the blueberries it continued. It went on for at least a week and a half and then it finally started to get lighter. I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease about a year ago and I'm considered mild to moderate. I have been taking Pentasa and although I have periods of neasea, pain in my lower right side, pretty excruciating back pain, and a lot of fatigue, I have not had to go on Prednisone. As far as I know I have not had any complications. I havn't seen my Crohn's doc since Sept. I'm also not running a fever---even when my poo was at it's blackest. Should I be concerned or just ignore it? I'm thinking if it was bad I'd run a fever or faint or both like you did....right?
