Dark green, solid stool?!

Patient : I just went to the washroom and I was a little alarmed because my stool was dark green... Almost like the dark army green color. It was solid, like a normal stool is supposed to be, so I don't think it was diarrhea and I haven't eaten anything green today aside from relish (on a sausage). I've never had stool this color so I'm just worried as to what could have caused it. I've been googling all night and decided to stop when I came across "pancreatic cancer" lol. Can someone give me some ideas? I have slight cramping in my abdomen as well but it's my time of the month so I'm unsure of which one is causing the cramping. I'm not on any medication and I don't normally take any vitamins.
Symptoms:  Cramping, dark green stool
