Diarrhea: When you have diarrhea, your bowel movements (or stools) are loose and watery. It’s very common and usually not serious. Many people get diarrhea once or twice each year. It normally lasts 2 to 3 days, and you can treat it with over-the-counter medicines. http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/digestive-diseases-diarrhea#1

Sounds like a: stomach bug or u could have eaten something off. I would manage this symptomatically. You should increase your fluid intake and change to a simple carb diet.Go to doc if symptoms persist for days or fever, bloody stools,or severe abdominal pain and vomiting appear.
