There are other causes for pale stool. What have you eaten in the last couple days?

Good gracious I have varied shades of doo doo as well and there's no need to worry about it. I've had poo range from peanut butter colored to blackish after having several rounds of pepto. In the the world of intestinal oddities, I say give it a couple days. When I've been worried about what's coming out, typically it all changes again when I eat different things. I also have diarhea a lot. Suspected IBS

I've had digestive issues/IBS since I can remember. The color of your stool is almost always associated with what you ate. There are exceptions, but in this case I don't think there's any cause for alarm at all. If it occurs frequently you should see a doctor. If there is pain associated with your gall bladder, liver, etc. then you should see your doctor. In absence of these factors, I really wouldn't worry. Anxiety can cause all sorts of weird and often unpleasant gastric issues. Various medications can also cause this. If you just can't stop worrying about it, ask your doctor to do a stool analysis to rule out any potential problems, but to help you in the meanwhile you should know that there is nothing urgently wrong no matter what the results may be. In other words, you are not dying. If you were, you'd have other, much more pressing symptoms than just pale stools.

This has happened to me too, but I generally pay no mind, since if it is black and tar-like, its because I had Pepto (I too suffer from IBS) or if it's something else like green, I just factor it to what I ate. Usually it's nothing to worry about unless you don't remember having a medication/supplement/food that could cause a "serious" stool color (Black, pale/clay, red)

you should only worry when you start pooing blood consecutively, ive had very light greenish poo myself...all the way down to tar..its very common and natural..it can be a derivative of dyhorrea or simply some different texture of something you ate.

If it's consistently white or gray see a doctor, but if you mean pale brown/yellow, you're fine.

Like mollyfin says, if its consistently white or grey see your doctor. 

Related funny side story - one Saturday morning I took a poop and when I looked it was pure white - I don't mean light colored I mean it was the same color as the white porcelain toilet!!!  I looked at it for like 5 mins trying to think what the hell could cause such a thing.  Couldn't think what it might have been and eventually flushed. 

Finally dawned on my late Sunday that I had a barium swallow test the day before and maybe that was it.  Monday morning called doc and he said "Yeah thats what caused it?  Did I forget to tell you that would happen?  My bad!!  Sorry!!"

Talk about thinking there was something wrong with your insides - lol

I always have a rainbow of colors like  skittles lol.. no kidding just not black tar ones no but if I eat different colored cereals wow it is neon green ! 

It all depends on what we eat and drink and our anxiety level or the IBS.

We are sure close watchers of our bowel movements aren't we I guess it is very common in worriers or hypochondriacs .

take care
