I hope everyone is doing well, I currently have one of those twenty four hour stomach bugs, on top of a flare of UC. Also, I have a question. It seems like the past few times I have had D, it has been a dark almost black color. What could cause this?

well my doc said that really black stools meant it was old blood from my upper intestine or even my stomach but i wouldn't worry about it, do you have any pains in your gut?

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, and forget about the ones who don't and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance take it, if it changes your life let it. Nobody said it was going to be easy they just promised it would be worth it.

Did you take pepto bismol? That will do it to you.
I hope you feel better soon!

If you continue to have black stools, I'd definitely call your GI and talk to him/her about it. It could be something you ate or caused by medication but if you are worried, it's always reassuring to have your doc's advice about it.

Another thing which causes black stools is iron.  Are you taking iron supplements?

Ah! The iron. It totally slipped my mind. Thank you all for your responses. And yes, I have been having really bad abdominal pain.
