Green Stool: HELP
« on: March 09, 2014, 12:46:15 PM »
I just went to the bathroom before a shower, and my stool was totally completely light green. Yesterday I ate a chicken/biscuit sandwich, a chicken sandwich with lettuce on it also but there was not that much lettuce on it, plus I eat lettuce all the time and never have green stool. I had blue Gatorade, a pink freeze pop, some French fries, and that's about it. What could be causing this? I've never had green poop like this before! It was a light green.

Could this be anxiety causing overactive bowels? I've been stressing hard for just over a month about MS and countless other nasty diseases. Someone please give me some insight and help cool me off!

It wouldn't be from what you ate yesterday I don't think.   My bowels are 5 days behind, normal people are about 2 days behind.  In the last let's say 4 days - did you have anything with blue or green food coloring in it?  I had a cake with a lot of green food coloring and dark blue icing and a few days later had a green stool with BRIGHT green mucus!  Green is one of the stool colors that are caused by what was eaten.  I am sure other foods can cause it like a LOT of spinach or something.

it can be a lot of things. none of which are bad! there is actually a site that says "what your poo says about you" and it was seriously informative, because i too, get scared over things like this.

I had blue Gatorade twice in the last few days. Small amount of lettuce, I started a new multivitamin 4 days ago. Nothing else I can think of though.

Green is a normal color - it means that your food was digested too quickly and too much bile got dumped in.  I had that a few months ago and went into complete panic but it's actually normal.

I guarantee it was the Gatoraid.  It happens to me all the time you drink dye colored fruit drinks or juices it will turn your stool green yellow and red

Guess it probably was the Gatorade. It was that new really dark blue one. I had some 3 days before and then again 12 hours before I had the green stool this morning. Guess that makes sense.
