Can extra hard work with muscle damage cause blackening of stools ?
I worked in my yard Saturday for 6 hours racking and bagging. My legs and arms hurt so bad I can hardly bend over - seriously. Bid time lactic acid build up. Question: Can that extra hard work with muscle damage cause a momentary blackening of stools. I have never had this before. Some dehydration may be involve too on the day or work.
Blackening of stool, momentary nothing much to worry. There are many causes of of blackening of stools. Internal bleeding is the most common cause of blackening of stools. That extra work with dehydration would have caused dehydration and hard stools.
