The Shit Volcano asks:

I recently went to the doctor for a regular check-up, and she decided that my medications needed to be turned up a little. The medication is used for social anxiety disorder.

Okay, don't laugh! I'm self-conscious.

Anyway, since this time, my pee has been orange. Not all the time, but some of the time. A friend told me that this could be due to the medication. I don't know, as I have been on both medications for years without orange pee.

I am drinking plenty of water, so I don't think it's a water issue. Perhaps ass gnomes attacking again? I don't know.

Maybe you have an answer, Poonurse.





Dear TSV,

Thanks for the question!

Abnormal changes in urine color can be caused by many things, including certain medications (although I couldn't find any mention of psychotropic drugs doing this) -- and especially laxatives.

Vitamins may cause orange urine.

Different foods such as beets and rhubarb may cause orange urine.

There are also a host of nasty diseases that may cause this.

I personally do not believe that the Ass Gnomes mess with urine very often.

What you should do is to increase your intake of water (even though you said you drink a lot, be sure you are drinking 8-10 large glasses a day); keep track of the foods you are eating; and make note of any vitamins or supplements you may be taking.

If it continues, see your doctor and find out what's up.

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

-- Poonurse

Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.

Got a question for her?

Just learned this one. If you eat nothing but strawberries all day your pee turns pink.

If you take vitamin B complex it turns neon green. It's pretty cool!

No more orange pee. Thank God!

The other day I got freaked out when I discovered my pee was cherry red. I went to the doctor because I'd been having back aches and thought I had a wicked infection. She couldn't find any evidence of an infection and the backache turned out to be from my old injury.

I was baffled until I remembered that I'd been taking cranberry extract. It turns the pee cherry red.

I get bright yellow pee when Mary Mary forces B-vitamins down my gullet. If I pee in her toilet, which has blue water, it all turns a glowing green.

My pee turns citrine when I take my B- complex. I'll have to try the blue water thingy.

Those of you getting citrine/very yellow'ish pee from taking B group vitamin suppliments should not worry. Talking these B suppliments will normally cause odd coloured, very yellow pee, so there is no need to worry.

Other things can make your pee change colour/smell such as asparagus etc.

Regarding the orange coloured oil in poop, I experienced this for the first time during christmas whilst at my parents house and had absolutely no idea what was causing it there. Just today, the same thing happened again. The only thing that is the same about the two times is me eating many roasted nuts - particularly cashews. I'm not certain that this is the reason but it's the only thing I can think of that is the same... any help?

umm .. sorry to break it to you people, but cashews are definitely not the reason for orange circle things in your poop. why? because i hate cashews, have never eaten them since 4th grade, and still have the circle problem.

I was thinking the same thing Dave! I eat lots of green vegetables and sometimes my poop turns a greenish or when I go on my greek olive kick it gives it a dark consistency depending on the olive. You should see what spanakopita (thats greek for spinach pie) does to poo. Its great. Dave are we throwing a party when you get to post number 11K.

ive had the orange oil blob poo problem before, and also had it getting in my pants from farting. it only lasted me a couple days. right before i got it, i had some really bad lower back pain. i crack my back a lot. WAY too much, actually. same with my neck, elbows, wrists and knuckles. i'm only 18 and im starting to feel aches in my joints and need to crack them to temporarily relieve the pain, which only builds up again later, and i need to keep cracking to feel 'normal'. this is very bad when you're a guitar player, or any kind of musician for that matter, or even artist. you can really ruin your hands. i dont care if 'no studies have confirmed links to arthritis', I AM EIGHTEEN AND WELL ON THE WAY TO IT.

anyway that's off topic.

i had some bad lower back pain and tried cracking it to relieve the pain, which usually works, but this time only made it worse. truth is i just strained my back at work. but when i woke up in the morning, i had the orange oil in my pants. then i noticed it when i farted, i got more. that night i took a dump and the oil was floating all around the toilet, and lots on the toilet paper. i was scared that it was something to do with my back, but it went away. a couple days later i got it again, but with no back pain. that was when i had sufficient information to discover the linking symptom: i had eaten frozen pizza dinners two nights before each orange oil incident. that was the constant. and indeed, the poo oil was identical to the cheesy grease on a pizza!
ew! so i've stayed away from those since then. :P interesting though that it was the only time that had happened to me, despite having eaten the same frozen pizzas (same brand even) many times before.

How the hell are you guys getting orange poop?! I've tried every color I can think of, but orange is the only shade of the rainbow I have never achieved...

Kidding! Kidding! As Dave said, it's probably the fish. That, and you guys need to cut down on the fat in your diets. Those orange circles of oil are fats in your system that are being passed through. Stop eating so much fast food!

Cashews contain caustic resin which the body can find hard to break down. There seems to be more in cheaper cashew nuts if that makes any sense.

Slimming products contain a fat inhibitor, meaning that excess fat content is expelled almost as it entered the GI tract.

Escholar is a fish that contains a waxy substance that is unable to be broken down by the fish. The fish stores this in its muscle. The same applies when this fish is consumed, and the person who ate the product is unable to digest its fat. Instead of the absorption process taking place it is expelled as it entered the system.

There are threads in a few other websites. Expelling the oily substance may be leveraged by an already compromised digestive system (ibs). Some sufferers also have low cholesterol absorption.

I ate 2.5 lbs. of "baby" carrots with ranch dip in the last two days and had very soft orange poop. It's like the lottery. You never know what you're going to get, but certain things make sense, like carrots and orange poop. I think I met my beta carotene quota for the month. BTW, beta carotene is fat-soluble, so I wonder if, somehow, it comes out in undigested lipids (oily substance in poop...)? Hmmm. Do oils make it out the other end without being digested??? Maybe if the stuff that breaks down fat (bile?) isn't in high enough quantities, maybe the oil comes out, along with the beta carotene that dissolved in it.

I have orange oily poop. And I am English...It travels across the oceans. I am prepared to do a survey of my poop. I will keep a poop diary based on Cashew consumption and level of orange poop. This should prove the theory one way or another.

I have no idea what's causing the orange oil slicks, but it's freaking me out beyond belief. I'm already a hypochondriac, I don't need something ACTUALLY going wrong! I haven't eaten cashews, I don't eat fish...what the HELL is wrong with me? I've barely eaten anything in the past few days, but I have had a bit of a cold. My sister seems to think it's mucus that's just taken on some of the colors that go along with poop. I need definite answers and can't find them anywhere, and now am in a state of panic, because I don't have the answer I need, and now it's a weekend. What the hell am I supposed to do? Seriously, I need an answer that can apply to me...seriously scared.

i have been eating frozen pizzas and drinking my ass off for three nights straight. i can tell you that these combined will make you poop orange oil, its nasty. the reason for the oil is that your body cant break down that much grease.

I also had the orange oil in my poo, and before I even came across this page I had a hunch that it was all the cashews I had just eaten the day before. I plan on not eating cashews for a few days to see what happens. When all is "clear" I'll binge on cashews again to see if the oil comes back.

I actually ate a whole bunch of raw cashews 2 weeks ago and had the orange oil and the poop and 2 months ago I also got orange oil after I had cashews so for me I'm pretty sure it's the cashews it's probably something that I can't digest

Wow, I can't believe how many people are having this problem!

I kind of have an orange oil poop problem, except mine is not quite orange, it's almost like neon green. Kinda looks like olive oil. But I haven't consumed olive oil recently. No cashews either. A stir fry yesterday, and some greasy chicken chunks last few days, which is my theory so far - the greasy hot sauce is turning colors on me...

Well I woke up this morning with horrible stomach pains. I blew the biggest fart I ever let go, and when i sat down my ass felt kinda slick. Then all the sudden I had to go push some poop outta my butt. I did my work and decided to look and it was Orange and Oily i almost shit myself I thought I had aids or something, but i remember at work I at some kinda white fish and had cashews as well. After all my research everyone said the same thing so dont eat to much white tuna fish or cashews, because you constantly leak outta your ass and you have to hold your farts in or its a mess and by the way the smell is horrible, smells like burnt rubber with garlic in it

Thanks, AC. We've been waiting around for somebody to suggest that prarie turn himself in to authorities. 3-4 days is a little long to wait, but we'll try to be patient.

Now as to your ass problem. I'm afraid that prarie is the local authority on asses and their problems. We'll try to get Bilgepump in here to help; he has some expertise with ass diagnosis but certainly he's no expert like doggie is (was). So I'm afraid you may be out of luck, buddy.

Good luck, but whatever you do don't go see a doctor. He'll (or she'll) just laugh and make jokes at your expense.

Dear Anonymous Coward,

After careful review of your case we have to agree that you are not sick. You are, in fact, better than healthy.

The colored poops you've been experiencing have just been trial runs. You are shitting the Rainbow. It seems that the Skittles Corporation has taken up residence in your asshole. They decided that you should be the new location of operations after taking measurements. Your asshole had the largest amount of space to be offered in the tri-state area. This means, of course, that you are the largest asshole around.

We welcome your repeated visits to the site, as they re-enforce the validity of the measurements. Only someone with an asshole as large as yours would constantly post on a site that others visit the same site too much.

Please continue to post in the future, as it will hopefully make you an even bigger asshole, and that, in turn, will give the world more Skittles.

We are always right, and you're just jealous.

Sincerely,

Management

This is the funniest "shit" i've ever heard of... (altho i have it aswell at the moment)

Damn oil slicks aint fun tho... i'd rather some skid marks instead.. but oil.. hell no.... and i ate a load of cashews explains the oil... and a load of dried apricots explains the more liquid form.

I'm glad theres many others with the same problem.. i was about to goto the docs.. thinking i had some sort of disease..

oh BTW why the hell do American toilets have such small holes... i clog them on courtesy flushes... here in Australia the hole is about 3-4 larger and i clog that without the TP in 1 of 3 chances... damnit i hate my 1KG turds, after around 60-70 days i've done a shit thats equal to my weight.

I'm going to go out on the Prarie Doggins limb and break it, by suggesting going to a doctor. If the orange oil pancakes persist and/or are acoompanied by epigastic pain. You could be having malabsorbtion due to a number of reasons like, for example, Pancreatitis. Don't get scared. You probably don't have Pancreatitis because you would get really sick with nausea, vomiting, pain 10/10. If acute, end up with your butt in the hospital. It could be the first sign of Pancreatic cancer, I don't know. If you can't absorb fat then an enzyme that comes from the pancreas is not functioning. Exception is to the side effect of that chemical in the potatoe chips. If it is just that your pancreas is not functioning normally because of diabetes, you have to know . Malnourishment ensues if malabsorbtion is not corrected. Get it checked out .

I am an old man and easily confused but didn't;t this thread start about orange pee and then sorta turn to poop? I wish no bad luck on anyone but a dog I once owned was peeing bright orange and the vet said it was caused by an excessive amount of biliruben in the urine. Excessive biliruben causes jaundice and is, I believe, a sign that the old liver is not working correctly. Anyone who pees orange should see a doctor. If you shit orange just watch what you eat.
