    None of us here will be able to diagnose you. What I would suggest is to journal--write down everytthing you're eating, the time that you eat, and when you have the diarrhea. Also note the color of the diarrhea. If there's any 'solid' pieces--notate color/shape of that as well.

    Make an appointment with your doctor. Your doctor will ask what you've been eating, what symptoms you've been having--and he/she will ask you the color/shape/consistancy of your stool--the journal will really help. He will also want to know if you've done any international travel as well.

    Your doctor will have you do a myriad of tests, including blood tests, stool tests, and other more intensive tests like colonoscopy, endoscopy, and others if the blood/stool tests come out negative.

    So go see your doctor a.s.a.p.!
