  1. Long story short... I have had bad intestinal infections for years, which have increased over the last year. They diagnosed me with "ileitus" as when I have these flareups, my white blood cell count goes way up. The pain has been enough to "win" me morphine in the ER. I was hospitalized for five days while they ran tests. They came up with nothing. I have had CT scans, xrays, colonoscopies, fecal testing.... everything. The GI dr. I saw- head of the department and the big university here- said he had no idea! So my bf suggested I cut out gluten. So far, so good, although I did have a small bout of my "problem" (without the sweating and fainting and vommiting, but with diarhea and ache) about a month ago, but it was very mild compared to usual. Now, my issue is that no matter what I do, I feel faint, tired, and have diarrhea most of the time. I came accross this forum from google where I found this old page of posts: http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/lofiversion...php/t21650.html My bp was 92/55 yesterday at the dr's. She didn't seem to think anything of it, but it normally runs 110/80 or so. Now mind you- I'd rather have diarhea than what feels like a blockage with the horrible pain and vommiting all night that goes with my "episodes".... But the faint thing is a little embarassing. It feels a bit like I'm pregnant, but I know I am not. (Just had a test at the ER on Tuesday, plus I'm on B/C.) I am not losing weight that I know of. When I was exercising more I got to be borderline too thin, but now I've just reached a plateau. Looking forward to reading. Jennie
