yes, prolonged diarrhea can be serious

it can cause you to loose fluids and cause dehydration

it can cause electrolyte imbalances

you should see a doctor right away

and get stool testing to check for infection and dehydration.

you should see a doctor at the A&E hospital department or an urgent care center

or your primary care GP doctor right away

do you have a hospital close to you?

are your stools mostly water or stool?
