Getting greenish stool for 5 days with a foul taste in my mouth

I m a 40 year old male, and for about 5 days my stool has frequently been dark green. This has been accompanied by a slightly foul taste in my mouth. I have no other symptoms, such as diarrhea , abdominal pain , fatigue, etc. My diet has not changed recently, and otherwise I feel fine. Any ideas?

hello,
Diarrhea decreases bowel transit time, so any condition that causes diarrhea can result in green stool.other causes may e any medication like some antibiotics iron supplementation. also parasitic like giardia can cause it. consult a doctor about it.take care.
