DIarrhea: Prolonged diarrhea may indicate something other than a simple gasrointestinal infection. It may be caused by protozoa. Have you been traveling? Might indicate an underlying condition with suppressed immune system, or could be a bowel disorder. You need to see your provider for investigation of the problem.
