How Long Should I Have Diarrhea Before Seeing A Doctor?

Described as loose, watery stools that occur more frequently than usual, diarrhea is something everyone experiences. When suffering from diarrhea, you will have more frequent trips to the toilet and a greater volume of stool. Signs and symptoms of diarrhea usually last a couple of days, but can also sometimes last for weeks.  If your diarrhea does last for weeks it can be a sign of a serious disorder, such as inflammatory bowel disease, or even a less serious condition, such as irritable bowel syndrome.  Diarrhea houston, tx
