I've had flu-like symptoms recently and now have liquid stool with what looks like pieces of wood chip or shredded wheat in it. i eat a healthy diet. i don't have a health insurance so it's hard for me to go to the dr should i be worried?

Diarrhea : As you know I will not have a financial benefit from saying this, but health is an very important investment . There are clinics I have worked in where the charge to patient with a low income was as low as $15. There are options to get health care available to you which are not expensive . You can try telemedicine, but I think you need care in person
