I've had 2 days of diarrhea after eating heavy meal of shellfish and chowder. No poo, but saw some mucus and a v.faint amount of blood in toilet. Why?

I think there may be: a couple of explanations. You may have been exposed to a bacteria found in raw/undercooked seafood experiencing only mild symptoms of food poisoning. OR your mucus/mildly bloody stool could be an allergic reaction to the food. Either case suggests a visit/evaluation by your Doctor. Expect stool cultures, possible blood work. Go in now; the diagnosis may be elusive due to few symptoms/elapsed time. ...Read more
