New born, consistently sick, is fussy and gets cold sweats after a bout of diarrhea. Normal?

My daughter is 7 weeks old and she has been sick off and on since she was born. She just went to her pedo last week because she had water like diarrhea . She stopped having the diarrhea, but she is still just as fussy. Today she slept most of the day, when she was awake she was very fussy apart from a few minutes of playfulness. and had 5 bowel movements and has had cold sweats. She is breast fed and has been eating okay today. What should i do? Are the cold sweats normal?
