My husband has had diarrhea for two weeks. He has to go as soon as he eats anything, and sometime when he eats nothing, and sometimes he hardly makes it to the toilet. His stools are like water, but there is no trace of blood. At times he has chills.

I am a 25-year-old female. Have the following symptoms: fatigue, nearly constant nausea, diarrhea, chills. The symptoms usually last a few days. Then I m symptom-free for a few months, then they come back. Sometimes the symptoms last longer than a few days, maybe a week or so. A doctor has said gastroenteritis but I don t think that s it. Please help. Thanks.
