Hello.. I am trying to figure out why my stools are a light brown color.. apologies in advance for the details. They come out formed but are really mushy once they are in the toilet. I have colonic dysbiosis (strep overgrowth) and probably H2S SIBO (assuming strep again) and Candida. So I have high oxalates and low B6 and a lot of other issues. 12 months ago my stools were normal and I had one bowel movement everyday.. no constipation. Then I started treating the gut with natural antimicrobials/probiotics/etc.. thats when I started developing the constipation. Fast forward 9 months and all of my symptoms are 10x worse. I started some antibiotics for the strep and immediately my constipation was gone.. but my stools weren't a dark brown like they use to be. Any ideas what this might be? I'm going to see a GI doctor to rule out anything.. but I suspect Candida/SIBO is somehow connected to this. I'm assuming bile is somehow involved here. My liver also feels sore usually a few hours after I eat (I think it's the liver, my right side abdomen below the rib cage), and in the past few days since I've started using a probiotic it feels consistently sore.
