How old are you?

have you taken antibiotics for any reason lately?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
30.Took some for an ear infection three months ago.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

Ok. At this point, I am concerned you have developed C diff.

This is an infection that can take over the colon when you have taken antibiotics

I would get to a doctor right away and get tested.
