Warning: Bowel stuff: Maybe TMI!
For the past few weeks I've had stomach troubles so I've been giving myself a sort of bowel cleanse since yesterdayt, not eating after lunch and taking a couple of doses of epsom salt mixed with juice. I've gotten the usual results that I expected - going often, diarrhea. But I'm worried because I'm noticing some small, black seed like things floating in the water. This is gross, but I scooped a couple of them up and tried to smear them. They didn't smear but fell apart and acted like wet seed husks. The problem is, I haven't had anything with seeds since Monday (I had strawberries in a smoothie), and these were a bit bigger than strawberry seeds.
Now I'm worried that this could be the dreaded "blood in the stool"! Of course Googling worked me up into a panic!
We're about to leave on a 2 week vacation Sunday and I'm so scared that this is something serious!
