Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

Black stools imply an upper gastrointestinal bleeding from either gastritis or a peptic ulcer

Part of this is likely from a fairly severe anemia but with the uncontrolled loss of urine and feces you might have actually had a partial seizure while on the floor

I consider this a very urgent situation and I have no choice than to urge you to get to an emergency room just as soon as possible

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
