you need stool testing however. if it is c-diff, there will be one medication. if not, you will need to change/sronger other medications.
going to ER will not make the lab get the culture done faster, but it may get it in the lab 12 hours sooner. do you want ER fees to get a 12 hour jump. You will still wait 3-5 days for result.
only other reason to go to ER is if D is so bad you are dehydrated. you usually have to be vomiting too to get seriously dehydrated.
