Can having diarrhea actually cause someone to gain weight?

I know this is an odd question but after returning from the carribean, I have had bad diarrhea and have actually gained 3 pounds since. Not eating anything different just less of what I usually eat. Any ideas? don't be disgusting!

Could it be possible that you were allergic or sensitive to any food whilst being in the carribean?
food sensitivity means that Much of the weight gained is fluid retention caused by inflammation and the release of certain hormones.
Symptoms of food sensitivity can include headache,fatigue, depression,and chronic bowel problems such as diarrhea or constipation.
Basically that means that most of the Food associated with food sensitivity is collected and fermenting in the Gut, often causing gas or "that bloated feeling", or in your case diarrhea and weight gain.
Just drink plenty of water and healthy foods to release the "trapped food" which should make the weight disappear =]
