Very watery, green output

Hi all
For the past 48 hours I have had completely water output. It's never been this loose and is also green. I normally have pretty solid output.
I'm assuming it is a stomach bug - as I also have aching muscles, fatigue, nausea and a tender stomach.
I am trying to drink as much as possible and have eaten foods which normally help solidify the output.
Any more advice? I don't really know want to do next? Do I just see how things go?

Green could be bile or something you ate that stained it. Keep hydrated with electrolytes and keep an eye on it.

You may want to call your doc, even if it is Sunday. It could be bile, which could be a problem. You may have a small blockage, which will go away on its own but depending on pain level it may be best to go to the ER for some pain meds and fluids so you can pass it and have relief. Good luck and I will keep you in my prayers.

Whenever I've had something like that it's been a bug which has sent my ileo crazy literally filling the bag with watery green output every 20 minutes. I would get to the docs or hosp if it continues as dehydration is a real threat. like I say I had a similar issue with a bug called crypto sporidium and had to be on a drip for 5 days to keep me hydrated whilst it ran its course.

My output is always green, so I know in my case it is bile. Since this is a new thing for you, I agree with the others--have it checked out.

Ki3, since it nearly always happens for you, that would be your normal, like it is normal for me. Nothing to worry about for us.

It happened to me a lot too. It's not necessarily a sign of a problem unless accompanied by other symptoms.

GEC how are you doing?
