What's the cause?: Not a weird question at all! "plugging up" diarrhea will not cure an infection, fix an inflammatory process, improve an ischemic gut, or correct a functional issue. Medical evaluation is recommended appropriate to the duration of your symptoms, associations (bleeding, weight loss, pain, vomiting), as well as your other medical co-morbidities. Call your doctor please and get checked.

Depends: A lot depnds on your diet. Firsty modify it to something simple like simple starches, avoid acid foods. Try the brat diet, bananas, rice, apple sauce, and toast. If it persists see you doctor. Sometimes the diarhea may be a symptom that needs to be investigated further.

Nothing special: The color of poo is generated by the changes that happen to bile as it becomes changed in the intestines.It starts out dark green , transitions through yellow & may go to brown if it has been totally converted. Yellow doesn't mean any specific disease or process.
