It is not normal to have diarrhea, so one can look for the usual causes of temporary diarrhea, with temporary meaning it will go away in a day or a few days. Causes may include stomach viruses, contaminated food, medication effects, any food that just didn't agree with the stomach or intestines (and caused rapid transit of the stool), etc... When symptoms are prolonged, a doctor can evaluate.
