    IBS- Wrong color stool

    I have IBS, and I have had bloody stool.
    But the problem is, for the last week or so, I've been having a very green, like almost lime green/light grassy green stool.

    Its foul, and hurts my stomach and makes it turn as though I will have diahrea...
    What should I do?!?!?

    Anon, stools can be colored by the food you eat in some cases, but since you're also saying 'it's foul', and you are experiencing bloody stools (which is not a symptom of IBS), something is going on. You may want to consider calling your doc and having him/her run some tests to find out specifically what is going on.
