Dark Stool
      #200766 - 07/20/06 02:41 PM

Over the past week, I've noticed that my stool has become extremely dark (almost black). Is that a symptom of this virus?

Dark stool can be an indication of internal bleeding, not HIV. See your doctor.

could also be diet related, or can be caused by anti nausea meds such as pepto bismol....

Nope, dark stool isn't HIV related, especially in the beginning stages, BUT, dark stool is not normal, especially bowel movements that are almost black. Don't panic, just make an appointment for your Primary Care Doctor, and more than likely he will order a stool sample. And when I say dont panic, I mean DONT PANIC....i work in testing unit of a 5 campus hospital...i see black stool all the time....any age too!!
