Dear Anonymous,

It sounds as though you may have gotten food poisioning. Are you experiencing diarrhea? I am concerned that the red strands in your bowel movements may be blood (unless you ate something red that wasn't digested properly) but if you continue with these symptoms please see your doctor immediately. 

Please look through our list of food poisoning symptoms: https://www.empowher.com/condition/food-poisoning/symptoms and keep us posted.
