since last night around 8pm i have bin in the bathroom every 10-45 mins. its not my normal crohnie bm im having. there very small in volume, brown, sink, gelatinous/sand like diarrhea. i have no pain with this. im kinda scared and now at work so i cant make calls. i was wondering if this means anything to anyone or if someone has had this too. when i wipe its a yellow color? stomach bio maybe? i did eat some foods ihat aren't normally in my diet, and im stressing out about signing a lease today or tomorrow.... think that could do it? lemmi know what you think guys.

its like the sediment that comes out when your finishing the prep for a colonoscopy minus all the watery liquid.

I'm having similar difficulties (especially the sediment descriptor, that's a good way to put it!), but I'm having a heck of a time getting it diagnosed. I thought it was stress, but such is not the case in my situation... it has almost gone and then returned with renewed violence twice now.

My doc has done sonograms, bloodwork, and stool cultures. He's ruled out everything under the sun (gallbladder, obstruction, etc.).

I've had to repeat the C-diff stool culture 3 times now, though, which I find strange. Wondering if maybe they found something?

I'll let you know if I figure anything out.

My doc approved a prednisone "burst" if I get desperate (40mg for 2 days, 30mg for 2 days, 20, etc until tapered). Something to have as a back up plan?

I hope it's truly just stress for you and that it disappears! Keep us posted, and good luck with the lease.

doubling up on my probiotic and eating some extra yogurt has helped a bit, which leads me to agree with you that it's probably bacterial.

I remember one time when i went to the bathroom and my BM was really dark almost black. I started to freak out and even called my wife in to look at it. She said what have you had to eat recently. I then remembered that I had eaten a bunch of oreo cookies and that is what was causing the dark color. Thought I'd share as I can laugh about it now. :-)
