complicated question: Pika this is not one for the internet these can be caused by a variety if illnesses. Autoimmune problems come to mind. First you need a good internist, consultation with rheumatologist as well. These persons must be board certified in their fields as well. I would be surprised if your illnesses were not related to a central cause of either an immune nature, or lymptatic system disturbances. ...Read more

I have had diarrhea for 2 weeks and a stiff neck. I was wondering what's wrong.

See a doctor: Impossible to diagnose over internet. Two wks is a long time to have undiagnosed diarrhea. Do not know whether the stiff neck is related in any fashion, but if you describe all symptoms to doctor and allow a physical exam you should have a reasonable explanation and outcome. Good luck and hope you are better soon. ...Read more

Have Had diarrhea for 2 days now, and it is dark black and flaky. Yesterday but not today I felt incredibly dizzy, had a headache, and stiff neck. ER?

With your other symptoms I'd be concerned for at least some degree of dehydration so I think my ARMCHAIR SPIDEY SENSES tell me you should be seen today better than tomorrow. Other questions?

Very sharp pain that last only a few seconds then shoots up to my neck, abdomen pain, diarrhea , fatigue, very low iron count ?

Get medical check up: Your symptoms do not fit into anything special medically speaking. Two things that worry me is your fatigue and low Iron. I hope your hemoglobin level is not low(?Anemia). This can cause fatigue and make you feel unwell. It is best that you go to your family doctor and get checked and find out the cause of your fatigue and receive medication for the underlying cause. ...Read more
