I have had ongoing upper abdominal pain for 2 months which is worse in mormings and at night. Regularly wakes me up at 3am in morning. Of late i have completely lost my appetite feel continually nauseous and have noticed black specs in my stools. The whole stool is not black. My doc thinks i have ibs but none of the medications for this i have tried have made any difference to the pain. I am also getting hot and sweaty when feeling nauseous.
Does anyone know if the black specs could be blood? My diet in the last few days as been cereal only, cornflakes and oats. I cant see that this would cause black specs - help please i am getting really worried and seem to be getting worse.
