Injury: Insult to the bowel from viral or bacterial infection and treatment with antibiotics that kill off "good bacteria" can cause this problem. I would first try taking probiotics from the health food store. The recommended daily amount taken three times daily for one week then daily. If this doesnt' solve problem or it is too severe to wait then see your physician.
