Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

YES you should go to the emergency as soon as possible as this is not normal and will not get cured by over the counter drugs.

The diarrhea needs a stool culture and your urine leak needs to be examined.

I will advise you strongly to go to the Emergency as soon as possible.

Feel free to consult me directly

I am very grateful for your quick answer and for showing me a sense of urgency! I know something is not right. Usually I make really quick recovery com viruses or food poisoning and while I thought I was feeling better from whatever was bothering me this morning was horrible. I am surprised I didn't pass out from the pain and everything else. My doctor was able to see me and I am here now. Thank you so much!!
