When sleeping with no cover and feel cold at night. I wake up with diarrhea that lasts for 3 or more days. Why would being cold while sleeping do that?

How can I get rid of diarrhea?? Been having it more than like 2 weeks... Anything I eat or drink I gotta go to bathroom?
Needs check up...: If diarrhea has been going for that long you need a formal exam and labs done in order to check for colitis, bacterial infection, parasitic infection, hepatitis, among others which could be the source of your symptoms.
