I have small pea-sized round 'things' that are yellowish/green in my stool. This started a couple of months ago with chronic diarrhea. I have seen dozens—they have been biopsied and docs have no idea what they are. It doesn't look like any food I've eaten or any medication. I have already been tested for O&P—specifically Giardia—all negative. I've had a colonoscopy, fluoroscopy, endoscopy, abdomen ultrasound, pelvic ultrasound, small bowel follow-through, bloodwork, lower ct. All negative for anything abnormal. What could this be?
I have the same things..I put on gloves,rinsed one off and broke it open and their is a chalky substance inside them. I also today passed what looked like the little balls out of a Silica packet. I am taking Venlafaxine HCL (Effexor XR) in capsule form and I am beginning to wonder if it is from the meds.
If you have found the problem please re-post as I am at a loss myself.
I have found something simular in my stools, Its bright green, bean shaped. about 1/2 inch long. When i cut into it, its blue on the inside surrounding a pocket of white powdery substance. the out side is gummy. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. if you have anything to add. I have called my doctor, but still waiting for return call.
I am having this same problem. Was so schocked to see these green balls with a powder substance in the center of them. Did you or anyone ever find out what the cause of these could be and if so please share. Thank you
This can't possibly be normal. You've had about every known digestive test, but some doctor should be able to figure this out. You need to be your own health advocate, so please see another doctor. There's got to be a reason. Unexplained weight loss isn't good. Blood panels, etc. should be done.
Good luck and please do check back if you get a diagnosis or an answer of some kind. Several people want to know.
I've had these several times. Took me almost a year to figure it out. Basically it might be fungis. A condition called Candanda. If it is i suggest you do some research on the subject. It's actually a life threatening condition so I'd be quick about your actions. I'd see a holistic doctor as most med doctors ignore Candida as there is not a very reliable way to test for it because fungis in the stomach and blood are elusive unless they are concentrated.
In addition the CDC says that Candida might possibly a problem in America but f ails to give much information about it on their website. But then near the end they mention that 25% of all blood infection related deaths are attributed to Candida which suggests this problem might be an epidemic in america.
