Hello,

First of all, you should do some investigations such as: ESR and CBC to exclude Giant Cell Arteritis.

The physical examination is crucial in this case,the doctor can find a rope-like structure in front of your left ear.

If the investigations were positive, you should take cortisol and Aspirin 160 mg two times per day, because this disease can affect the retinal artery causing blindness.

If the investigations were negative, you ask a dentist for help. Because you could have a dental infection your teeth and this infection can cause diarrhea.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
