Bowel problem: It's unclear as to whether you're experiencing diarrhea or constipation or both. If symptoms are only 2 days old, it could be from some food intolerance. If diarrhea is present, a viral intestinal tract infection or food poisoning are possibilities. Rest, avoid harsh roughage, eat bland and nonspicy foods, continue good fluid intake and, if symptoms don't gradually improve, see your physician.
