Hello, I've just started eating healthier and working out 3-5 times a week. I've cut soda and snacks out of my diet almost completely (I allow myself soda/snacks on occasion). But about a week ago I started having
*yellow runny stool
*migraines (common when I'm sick)
Then my diareha cleared up but my stool was still yellow for about 2 days.
Then my stool became green and hard to pass.
I took 2 laxatives and the next day I was on the toilet for most of the day.
I've had some severe abdominal pain-especially on the right side. (both upper abdominal under my rib cage and near my hip.

I cannot see the doctor until tomorrow because they are booked solid. If anyone can give me some advice or answers I'd be very greatful.
Thank you!
p.s. I took a pregnancy test just to be safe. No baby for me.

  • So I went to the doctor today and he thinks somethings up with my gallbladder. I have an ultrasound thursday morning. I had my gallbladder checked when I was like 14 and found I had like a fold in it and bile wasn't being released quickly enough. Hopefuly this is whats wrong and I can just get the sucker out and be done with it.

  • If it is your gallbladder they may also run a heitoscan and then an endoscopy. FYI: Pepto Bismal's active ingrediant (bismuth) aids in processing the gallbladder bile AND a new color stool for you! Another shade of green LOL
