Dear please see a doctor as soon as possible.Dark stool means there are chances of bleeding inside your gastrointestinal system.The weakness and difficulty in breathing that you are having on exertion may be due to low hemoglobin or some cardiac problem.You need some investigation and treatment .Please do not ignore this.See a doctor as soon as possible.take care.

I have a history of Osgood Slaughter s syndrome and last year my spleen and liver were diagnosed as enlarged on a sonogram and CT scan . Cut to this year where for the past 3 weeks I have been experiencing extreme bloating , gas immediately upon eating as well as the need to have a bowel movement . I have also been going more frequently and they are not normal at all. Very foul smelling. I had another sonogram yesterday and the spleen is larger than the previous measurements taken. Today I began also experiencing groin pain on my right side. I am scheduled for another CT but am miserable and scared.
