Brief Answer:
This can be many things

Detailed Answer:
Hi Stratton25,

Persistent diarrhea can be many things, e.g. a side effect to laxatives, malabsorption, infection, pancreatic insufficiency. Right now the most important thing is to stay hydrated, drink lots of high calorie beverages.

Are you nauseated? Do you throw up? Do you have fever? Stomach pain? Blood in your stools? Weight loss? Recent travels? Any coexisting medical conditions?

Looking forward to your reply.
