also, my head feels to be soft on the left back side

Customer Question

i am 20 years old and for the past couple of days i have felt a little awkward. i feel like when i stand or walk around, im tilted a little bit. also, my head feels to be soft on the left back side, but i know that warm water from a shower could make this happen also. also, my stool has been green, and im not too sure if that has anything to do with it or not.

not really any gas problems, just a green stool, and no abdominal pain, and and yes i have some stress from an injury i recently had that has prevented me from playing
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 5 years ago.

The green stool are usually not worrisome, unless they are persistent for 5-10 days. They are likely due to;

1) food which is green.
2) an occasional diarrhea or some increased intestine movements let the undigested bile salts flow in the stool which can cause stools to be green. This is a self limiting problem and resolve spontaneously.

Feeling awkward, slight tilt can be due benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. These symptoms can be aggravated by the stress. Again, they are not likely to be due to any significant illness.
