    Either you had diarrhoea bacteria on your hands that went into your mouth while flossing or it’s something else and not related

    Usually your diet is a predictor of diarrhea. Do you floss your teeth in the morning before going out?  Sometimes just before you go for the door it's bathroom time.

    Usually, people who experience pain after or during flossing are those that are new at it. Improper techniques and tools are the most common reasons for this unpleasant ache. At the end of the day, flossing means putting a sharp rope between your teeth and cutting away potential breeding spots for bacteria.

    That is ridiculous. There is no connection whatsoever.

    The tooth bone's connected to the butt bone.

    Mild diarrhea after flossing your teeth does not have any connection.

    My TV worked just fine before you knocked on my door.

    Just because something happened after another thing, that doesn't mean one caused the second thing to happen.

    You have diarrhea.  That's all.  It has nothing to do with flossing your teeth.
