No.

Is there any pain in somach?

Dr. AM. MD. :

any change is stool color?

Nothing noticeable....some urgancy

Dr. AM. MD. :

Only thing that need to evaluated properly is pencil like thin stools.

This can be sign of serious disease effecting gastrointestinal tract

You need to get your self examined by specialist i.e gastroenterologist

I did not have this previously....until I tried to take ACAI supplements

Dr. AM. MD. :

Few investigations like ultrasound , barium studies and if required CT-scan will be required.

Dr. AM. MD. :

ACAI supplements for weight loose?

Customer:

Yes.....but it didn't work for me. They made me have stomach cramps, but when I quit I felt constipated.....or I have the thin pencil like stools.

Dr. AM. MD. :

still are you having this?

I quit taking them....so now I feel constipated, even having the thin pencil like stools I don't feel like I am completely being emptied....does that make sense?

About a month

Caused by the ACAI? Or unrelated?

Dr. AM. MD. :

You should get yours self examined and few test done.
