Do I need to see a doctor?
AmIdying posted:
Yesterday, I had diarhea which was an off-putting whiteish gray. Today, I woke up to nearly crippling lower abdominal pain. When I stood up, the room started spinning and I got really hot. The pain has dulled since then, but it goes back to the terrible pain when I pee. My anus hurts, too. I've been throwing up and it burns really bad (like eating a really spicey pepper, which I know didn't cause it because I don't eat spicey foods). I have trouble standing up straight without wobbling. I've also got some abdominal swelling. Should I take this to the doctor or will it subside?
