Analyzing ... Can't stop
« on: March 03, 2014, 08:58:59 AM »
Hello everyone,

Do any of you find yourself obsessively checking your stool each and every time ? I do it all the time and panic whenever my stool is light in color. I know stool can change color often depending on what you eat but on Saturday I found my stool was very light. I started to panic, anxiety kicked in. This morning my stool was light brown and I once again said to myself " wow .... I fee relieved". That day I eat eggs like twice in the same day and had some pea soup. Can that change the color of your stool ? Man I wish I wasn't always obsessing on this ....

One solution I thought of, not sure if anyone else does this, would be to flush right away so I don't even get a chance to look. Do any of you do this ???

yes what you eat does change the color of your poop. I noticed I ate chili last night mine had a red color to it. I don't worry about this as it is not where my anxiety is at. I know how you feel when a lot of people don't respond to post. I feel there are more readers on here then posters. I mostly have been myself but I had posted things I wanted a response to but didn't get.

Color of stool is pretty much irrelevant unless it's white (NOT light brown) or black and tarry looking. It is influenced by what you eat, how fast it is moving through your digestive system, what you drink, any medications,etc.

It was just a very light color and I got worried, I guess for nothing.
