You certainly have all the symptoms of dientamoebiasis, the most important thing is to keep your body hydrated because of all the fluid loss, this is best done using over the counter re-hydration powders like Rehydrat, Diarolite or Electrolade.
If you cant get to a chemist you can make your own re-hydrating drink by mixing a teaspoon full of sugar and a quarter of a teaspoon of salt in a pint of water.
There are plenty of drugs available to your gp to clear up any infection, don't take any 'blocking' agents for your diarrhoea those only serve to keep any infection in your system longer than need be. (+ info
