Back again with new nerve wrecking symptoms. I'm always constipated so my GI doctor gave me different things to try. This is the 3rd time I have taken the stool softener. I took the pills around 6:00pm last night and had diarrhea really bad at 4:00am. Today I went to work and when I came home I was having stomach cramping again so I decided I probably had to go. (This is really disgusting and scary.. tmi) It looked like what was black stool.. I am not sure because I had diarrhea it was most a yellow/brownish and watery. When I wiped there appeared to be red looking mucus which I have seen before as well as little black specs (which I have NEVER seen) I have read that black means internal bleeding. I'm almost 100% sure I have cancer now.. I know I am going to die I have all the symptoms of cancer (constipation, mucus in stool, now black... rectal pain, stomach pains, tailbone pain, lower back pain). I am only 19 years old I am not ready to die ;(
