the past two weeks my poo has become dark brown, like it was before my flare from hell in Oct.  Still a bit stringy but since my flare in Oct it had been yellowish brown, even during what I thought was remission.
 
Any thoughts on what that means?  I am curious???

Could be anything..., meds, a change in diet or even multi-vitamins (or iron supplements) can change stool color.

makes sense, I did add a new women's multi vitamin, instead of taking a few different ones, now all in one.
