This is embarrassing but nevertheless I need some input.
I'm on PPIs, Pepcid Complete and Gaviscon. I've always eaten a very healthy diet, plenty of fruits and veggies, whole grains etc. For the past several weeks, I've only eaten ultra-small amounts of 'white' foods, i.e., white rice, bread, etc. Since I started eating this way, (scared to eat anything else), my stool has been very pale and not well formed. I've started noticing black seed size 'things' on the tissue paper. Very few seed size but I think I see millions super-tiny ones in the stool, barely visible to the naked eye. So...naturally my anxiety flared up.
I read that undigested food will cause this. Perhaps you can enlighten me on this?
I will of course bring this to my PCP's attention when I go in on Monday for my semi-annual checkup.
I would truly appreciate your reply.
