Symptoms:  Constpation.. Dark small stool
Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for the query. Sometimes due to chronic constipation, you can experience dark stools with blood stai ns. If there has not been any bowel movement, you must consult a physician for an examination and investigations to rule out intestinal obstruction. Also, you can opt for a proctoclysis enema as a temporary solution to clear the bowels. Drink plenty of water and have a nutritious diet rich in fibre. Hope this helped. Regards
