Change of bowel habits: Change of bowelhabits would be difficult to explain ..need more history. ..One needs to know, if there's is diarrhea awakening u at night or if there is weight loss or bleeding...any travel or .anyone has similar symptoms or has this occurred before. Maintain hydration..one loses more fluids than they think..
