dark stool?

I've been having all kinds of stomach problems...I have a weird tenderness in my belly and I'm nauseated often. My doc told me I have anal fissures and I've been using a suppository and a cream for that but my stool is always dark...like almost black. is that bad?

  • Do you eat a lot of iron rich foods? That can cause dark stools along with the fissures could be seeping blood and that would come out black too.

  • Maybe the suppositories are making it dark maybe you should eat a lot of fruit, veggies, beans and drink lots of water. Hope you feel better soon.
