You : You definitely should see a doctor as soon as possible for an evaluation of your diarrhea. Most diarrhea caused by viruses tend to clear up in 7-10 days and when it doesn't, we often do further testing. You doctor may want to do stool studies to check for blood, fat, bacteria, or parasites. The list of causes is huge and includes infection, food allergy/sensitivity, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, endocrine disorders and medication side effects. The sooner you are seen, hopefully the sooner you will be treated and your diarrhea will improve. Good luck!

I'm : I'm sorry you don't feel well. The persistent nature of your symptoms warrants a medical evaluation. Any number of conditions could be causing your gastrointestinal complaints, and some could be serious. Dietary intolerances (lactose, gluten, etc.), collagenous colitis, inflammatory bowel disease (e.g., crohn's disease), bacterial overgrowth, and irritable bowel syndrome could all be at the root of your symptoms. If you haven't seen your physician yet, i urge you to do so. I've attached some links that might be of interest to you.
