  • Your system needs to rest a bit. The cramping may be due to whatever caused the diarrhea. I'd probably eat some soup, and a pretty much normal healthy diet, including yogurt to replace lost intestinal flora. I also can't argue with Butterfly's suggestion. I've never tried Miralax, but if it works then all the better. I hope you feel better soon.

  • You're probably not constipated, there's just nothing left in there to come out!
