I am very sorry, but there is nothing that can be done online. These problems need to be evaluated in person with a physician and need to be evaluated soon. Diarrhea for this amount of time has probably depleted your body of some essential nutrients, and it sounds as if the problem is making its way up the intestinal tract.

I know this is not the answer you wanted, but it is the answer that has to be given. Find a physician NOW.
