Customer Question

I have been having diarrhoea for the 5th day now. I went to the ER a few days ago because I went to the bathroom for almost 50 times the days before. They thought it would have been cleared by now... My stool is very watery and yellow in color. What is going on and when can I recover?
JA: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: Not really. I think it also did a blood test and it seemed fine a few days ago. We thought that it was either food poisoning or come sort of viral infectikn
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
