In brief: If..

If symptoms have been present only for a few days this can be caused by a virus most of the time.
In this case drinking plenty of fluids,rest and taking over the counter antidiarrheal meds and analgesics helps with symptoms. If this has been going on for more than a week or so then it is time to get checked. Make an appointment with your doctor if this is the case.
