Chronic diarrhea: What you are describing sounds like chronic diarrhea. You should see your doc to be evaluated so you can find and treat the cause. Left untreated, this can lead to dehydration and electrolyte imbalances, which can become quite dangerous in some circumstances. Start with your family doc and go from there.
