Ladies.... Help... TMI!!!! adult content

Okay a few days ago I had horrible stomach pain, I took advil and laid down my pain never went away only became mild.. The next day I was very very nauseated and had diarrhea so I took two small tablets of pepto bismol and still continued feeling the same way. So just this morning the same occurring lower abdomen pain I have still exists and it woke me up I went to the bathroom to do my business... And my stool was black, I know pepto bismol can turn your stool black but could it also be from the lower abdominal pain? Other things I have noticed was alot of burping and gas, and gargely tummy noises... Whats going on with my body??

  • There is a stomach virus that is going around everywhere...i wouldnt worry you probably just have a stomach bug. Unless your stool is bloody then i wouldnt worry to much. And yes Pepto will cause your stool to be black. unless your having severe abdominal pain and bleeding i would take it easy at home and drink lots of fluids such as gatorade. Hope you feel better soon
