Tarry stools

I don't know exactly how it started , but I had constipation , I thought to address the issue by consuming more water , that lead to loose motions ... I also had a hemorrhoid then , but even now I feel uneasiness in my stomach and my stools are tarry , despite reducing water intake or increasing it

Hey ,diarrhea is not caused by drinking water ,it could be due to some other reason ,have vegetables containing fibre like green leafy, beans etc,, stool softener, laxatives may help you , drink water atleast 2-3 liter per day. Apply ice packs or cold compresses on your anus to relieve swelling.Get hemmoroidectomy done if its bothering ,consult surgeon
