Diarrhea.: This sounds like a diarrheal illness that has gone on the too long. At this point, I would recommend an evaluation - stool studies, maybe some blood testing. Had you taken any antibiotics before this started two weeks ago, because that could have something to do with it. Have you ever had a colonoscopy, because if not you should definitely schedule one soon.
