Customer Question
Well I'm waiting on...

Well I'm waiting on a call back from my doctor now, I had black stool this morning and a peachy colored urine late last night and this morning my stool was a light pool of blood. But when I just went now it was a smaller amount but had a bit of a fuzzy highlight of blood and a clayish color of red blotches and a strange black color. I've felt quite lightheaded for the past 20 minutes and have a really faight sensation in my abdomin. I'm trying to distinguish if a urgent care can help me or emergency room

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Great, felt good for awhile and have had normal stools

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I really don't believe so, and idk if this could be related to hamburger meat at all by any chance?

Alright, last thing I ate last night was a hamburger and it was a bit bloody but I cooked it for 10 minutes to reach a good temperature. If that at all could mean anything.

You should be in ER by now.

Black colored stool means melena (which is blood coming high up from the gastrointestinal tract and the color changes due to bacterial degradation). This coupled with some fresh blood means that bleeding is significant, and now you are getting symptoms also (dizzy).

You need urgent CBC, and may need blood transfusion, and urgent evaluation by a GI doctor for possible endoscopy.

Endoscopy can make a diagnosis as well as can be used to clip the bleeding area.

You should not wait any further and go to ER asap

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
