Brief Answer:
This is not suggestive of a disease condition! Monitor only? How long?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this strange feeling that you have reported. Given your age and the nature of these symptoms, am really not concerned. This seems like a transient non disease related symptoms and requires no specific attention. For now, monitor only and exercise often. Drink much fluids, increase fruits and vegetable intake to restore the nature and aspect of your stool. If this fails to get resolved within 48hours, talk to me and let's take a look again.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.
