Bowel spasm?: This is not uncommon. You can try cutting back on greasy, fatty foods or whatever food seems to be the culprit for you, and increase the amount of fiber in your diet.. If you have a persistent change in bowel habits or any bleeding, see a gastroenterologist immediately. And don't forget your colonoscopy when you turn 50--it could save your life.

Change diet, or....: Well, you cannot treat the loose stool that's already out, but if you continue to have loose stools and this is something new, take a look and see if you've had any changes in your diet. If that doesn't work, go see a doctor and discuss. You may need to have some tests.
