Doctor :   Hi
User :   I've had the cold or flue for almost 2 weeks now. For the past week, I've experienced diarrhea (5-6 times per day with very little output in the beginning and as of the last 2 days a lot of output once or 2X per day, usually in the morning). Also I'm experiencing small headaches occasionally and weakness more often. Weakness may be from wearing warm sweaters all of the time to keep my body warm while at work.

With these symptoms, would you recommend I see a doctor right away??
