My stool was green and grey, What does it indicates ?

Last time I went to the bathroom my stool was green and grey. Not a mixture of the two, but some parts were green and others were grey, almost white. What does this mean? I m a 27 year old female. Was just at the doctor due to unexplained weight loss , and he told me I was healthhy. He ran blood tests and took a stool sample. I m on the generic form of welbutrin(spelling?) and also take vitamins daily. I m 5 3 and weigh 103 lbs. I recently lost about 15lbs. I don t know why, I eat the same I always have. My doctor said it s probably stress/ depression . I do have chronic night sweats as well. Wake up soaked almost every night. Other than that I ve always been healthy. Cancer does run in both sides of my family. My mom passed from it. All 4 grandparents had a form of it, and 3 other of my aunts and uncles have had it.

Hi welcome to healthcare magic forum

Cancer is common at older age not at your age.. there are many reasons for grey and dark color stool, acute gastritis can have mild bleeding in stomach which will result in grey or black colored stool... green colored stools are due to infections and indigestion.. do not worry much about cancer at this age..

I have been having grey stools lately and green today and for a few weeks my stools have changed to a ribbon like form. I had the homee colon cancer check, which came out negative, several months ago. Today is the first day I have felt well since a week before Thanksgiving, when I thought I had some intestinal bug and was sick for over a week, followed by malaise, followed by a UTI, followed by pain in pancreas region (have had pancreatitis three times in 40 years), and all the while very tired. I amalso having a fibromyalgia flare. Is there any hope for me? I ll be 78 next month, female, 5 2 , 177 lbs.

Recent questions on  Night sweats

I have recently taken a close friend of mine to the Emergency Room due to shortness of breath, and a pinch on the left side (lung/chest area) it is worse when taking a deep breath. He is also experiencing night sweats very badly, to the point where the bed is drenched. He also will just be sitting and he will break out in a sweat to the point where he is just dripping sweat. he is a little overweight but the ER didnt diagnosis him they basically said it was just something that happens and sent him home with pain medication. it has now been a little over a week and he still is experiencing the pain on the left side and is worse when he takes deep breaths, and is still sweating. do you have any idea what this could be? he went to a follow up and the doctor actually told him he didnt have a clue what could be wrong. said the chest x-ray looked fine and again gave him another prescription for pain medication. i feel as if it is something more serious, but now he is being stubborn and wont go back to the ER because he thinks the doctors are just passing it off as nothing serious. he is very uncomfertable and i just want to know if you have any idea what this could be so maybe i could pass the information onto him. thank you!

I have severe, constant itdhing of the skin. Have been unable to determine the cause. Nothing has been changed in diet, laundry detergents, etc. The itching seems worse during the night, causing night sweats, dampness of undershirt. Dermatologist has given me AMMONONIUM LACTATE CREAM, 12% to use twice daily and it seems to burn when applied.

I have had a fever for the past 3 days along with a stiff neck and back, and loss of appitite. My fevers usually range between 101.5- 102.6 with the occasional 103- 103.6. Last night I had night sweats and have started to get an infrequent cough. I also have granuloma annulare and with my immune system down it has flaired up swelling one eye shut and leaving various lesions around my knuckles, feet, and face. The fever and aches are keeping me up a lot at night and herefore I am always tired. Unfortunetley I am between providers and my insurance will not kick in until the 18th so seeing a doctor would be quite expensive. I have been drinking a lot of water and occasionally taking some over the counter fever reducers. I do have a perscribtion for Amoxicillin but I am not sure if that will help me. Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
