Call a squad or have someone take you to the ER.
Over 3 days at this rate and it is likely you have an electrolyte imbalance, or acid/base imbalance. These can become very dangerous and life threatening if you let them go on.
You are also dehydrated.

Stool samples need to be done, and you might need IV fluids at this point.

This is no longer a safe home treatment.
