Chills And Diarrhea

Reviewed on 6/15/2020

A number of things, including most commonly a stomach virus (sometimes called “stomach flu”) or food poisoning, can cause diarrhea along with fever or chills that lasts for a short time. Certain chronic GI diseases such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis can cause diarrhea with fever that lasts longer and can be more serious. Always check with your doctor if you have diarrhea for more than a couple of days, if it is very severe, if you have belly pain or high fever, if you feel you might be dehydrated, or if the poop is black, maroon, or bloody.
