Between a Block and a Soft Place

Well, this isn’t much of a choice: I was watching TV the other day when an ad for a prescription drug came on. Among the possible side-effects were “bad diarrhea, or … diarrhea together with … fainting, or dizziness.” [Emphasis added]

Now, I know everyone makes fun of these side-effects (like the anti-depression drugs that may “cause sexual dysfunction” – there’s a pick-me-up), but I mean is there really a difference between bad diarrhea and diarrhea where you pass out...or fall down?

How would that work in conversation?

Ted: “Bob, heard about your diarrhea. Was it bad diarrhea?”
Bob: “No, it wasn’t bad, I just passed out and fell off the bowl…”
