Customer Question

This is the 6th day that I've noticed passing green stools. In the past 5 days I've been getting dizzy spells while driving as well. It got worse today when I couldn't cross a bridge while walking. I also had headaches. What could be causing this? I eat vegan diet, consisting mainly of whole grains, fruit and vegetables. I also have 2 meals a day. My vegetables are stir fried and/ or steamed.

Stool is moving too fast.

This can be from irritable bowel, other colon problem, small bowel problem, infection

The dizzy spells and headaches warrant immediate evaluation.

West nile virus comes to mind as one possibility.

Gall bladder, liver problems should also be ruled out.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
