See a physician: You should have a history and physical exam in a doctor's office. Your diagnosis could be as simple as constipation, or more involved, such as various gastrointestinal ailments including gallbladder disease, enterits, malabsorption, etc. Only after a detailed history is taken can more information be provided.
