Hi everyone, i am not sure if anyone has ever experienced such but please, i am a bit worrried. I had been down with the flu a couple of weeks ago but because i didn't stay in bed and try to recuperate properly i have now gotten a re-lapse. This time around i am far worst off. I am physically week and even when i am on my feet for more than 2 minutes, I feel dizzy spells coming on - bouts of blackness as though i am about to faint. I have been resting now and drinking lots of fluids and trying to eat even though i have not really had an appetite. I have been taking my meds as well and this includes vitamin C and the doctor also prescribed TriHemic for the dizziness/blackouts. Well anyway, when i went to the bathroom today for a bowel movement (i hadn't had one on about 2 days) the stool was very black and also had an unusual smell, almost like a sick one. I've had the flu may times before and never had this type of stool. I was wondering if the TriHemic can be the cause of this. This really has me scared. Can someone please tell me if this is normal, I am so scared.
