Customer Question

Hi, I have been having stomach cramps for 2 days. Along with this I have had black stool and strange burps with a taste I cant really explain.
I havent paid too much attention to the tummy aches because i have suffered from bad IBS for most my life but as they have been for a couple of days now and with the other symptoms I am starting to worry.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
