Diarrhea generally involves loose and watery stools,but not all diarrhea is the same. The severity and duration is the biggest distinction.
Diarrhea that lasts a couple days is considered acute and likely caused by a bacterial, viral and parasitic infection.
Chronic diarrhea can last for weeks and indicate something serious like ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease or irritable bowel syndrome.
Likewise, vomiting can have many causes. There might be more to your diarrhea or upset stomach than the leftover guacamole you found in the fridge. Could it be a prescription drug reaction, an allergy, germs from recent travel or a more serious condition?
