Somebody help...

I just have a question. Earlier today, I experienced my stomach gurgling followed by one episode of diarrhea. Later this evening, I am still experiencing stomach gurgling but no diarrhea. I have not been running a fever, and have taken loperamide for the diarrhea. Any idea what might be wrong? I don't believe it is a stomach bug as I am not experiencing any nausea or vomiting. Thanks! :)

Hey Casssie12...
This sounds to me(I'm no expert) like you may have eaten something that upset your stomach, or possibly eaten too much of a natural laxative. I drank wayyy too much coffee one day and was in the bathroom every hour on the hour lol. Apple juice, chocolate and lots of other stuff does this to me all the time. Have you eaten any spicy food or tried new foods? I would wait it out for a day..and if it continues make sure you talk to your doctor. Just make sure you stay hydrated ;)

Hey Christianleigh09,
Thank you so much for your comment. :) I think that I might have had something that upset my stomach, for sure. I am feeling much better today but, the stomach ache certainly wasn't fun. :( Thank you again very much! Take care.

Hi Casssie12 - There are many causes of diarrhea, which you can find on our reference page: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/diarrhea#causes
You may want to seek medical attention if the symptoms continue for more than a day or two. Hope this helps! Pat
