One simple reason can be food poisoning or gut flu with fever. If the diarrhea started just recently, then take something like acetaminophen for fever. Take an OTC lactobacillus preparation (probiotics) and yogurt with your meals. Drink plenty of fluids (clear soups, water, ORS in water, lemonade). Eat light, do not stay hungry but eat simple things like toast, porridge, cereals, crackers, banana, rice, peeled apple, etc. Take over the counter antacid and antiemetic (this SOS for vomiting). Watch out for a day or two with this treatment. If still the symptoms persist, then you may need an antibiotic for the gut and would need to see a doctor.
If the diarrhea has been there for some time then IBS, Crohn’s celiac etc will need to be ruled out.
The other possibility is pregnancy. So, if you missed periods, take a pregnancy test and see. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
