Hello,

You have not urinated for 4 days? That alone would be reason That You would need to go to ER right away !

Diarrhea / shaky / bad falls --- sounds that you are probably SEVERELY dehydrated ...again you need to be seen at ER

Your stool has turned ...what ? Bloody ? Other ??

You have history that strongly indicates that you need immediate care
