Severe diarrhea

Questions and answers on "Severe diarrhea"

Hi recently one of my family members passed away... a night before she got admitted she had severe diarrhea, and when she got to the hospital they told her family her kidneys were failing...

In recent months I have had on and off random fluttering by my right rib under my breast. It would happen here and there and be gone. For the last two days has been constant.
