Diarrhea

Diarrhea is the discharge of watery stools, usually several times daily. Cramping and intermittent gas-like pains are not unusual. Diarrhea is caused when the intestines become over stimulated and push stools through before water is reabsorbed. Causes of diarrhea include infection, food poisoning, parasites and anxiety. Diarrhea is often brought on by nervousness, tension or emotional upset. Your body may be telling you to calm down.
