Brief Answer: Detailed below. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. Black (like a tarr) stool usually indicates bleed from the stomach. Upper middle abdominal pain appears, heart rate increases over 100. Vomiting with blood or dark stuff can be present. Skin gets pale. If you have such symptoms please visit ER as soon as possible. If your stool is just dark, not black, your symptomsare rather caused by some gastrointestinal infection. If the symptoms are present for more than 48 hours, stool tests, blood work and urine analysis shoud be done. Please start probiotic intake, and consider with your doctor antibiotic change. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
