Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

Normally the consistency of stool is soft to firm and color is yellow.

What you are having is not normal.

I would recommend that you visit your primary care physician at the earliest.

Color brown mostly indicates blood in to it.

There could be various causes for this, the common one are,

Infection in G.I.Tract
Some digestive issues
Some form of swelling or ulceration in G.I.Tract.
Some drugs given to you in past


Please visit your doctor. After examination you may be advised, stool test, blood counts, ultrasound of abdomen and other reports as per need to have proper diagnosis and treatment.

Please do not ignore this.

In mean time

Take regular healthy diet
Avoid tobacco in any form
Try to avoid constipation, have more of salads and fibers in your diet

I hope this answers your query, I will be glad to reply any follow up queries that you have.

In case you do not have follow up query, please accept the answer.

Regards,

Dr.Pragnesh
