The other day when I had a BM I noticed that one spot was black, maybe about the size of a nickel. Then yesterday, everything was normal, and this morning when I went there was another spot about the size of a nickel. I didn't think too much of it the first time, but now it happened again...so of course I'm thinking about it more.
I am in no pain, so I guess my question is, should I think it's blood or just something I happened to eat. Anyone know what types of things might cause black in stools?
I am seeing my GI tomorrow, so of course I will ask him, but just thought I would try to get some thoughts before then!
