I woke up one morning with confusion and a fever. Husband took me to hospital. I had pneumonia. WBC 17,000. Admitted to hospital. In middle of night nurses ran in my room and I was in atrial fib. Admitted to I CU. Converted on my own. After going home I started passing out on standing. I was injured several times. I have had diarrhea at this time for a couple months. Dr thought dehydration. I was in hospital again for falling given large amounts of fluids. It has been 8 months. I am still dizzy, still diarrhea and now walk a few steps and cannot get breath. My life has went from a very active person loving to travel to sitting in. Chair all day taking 2 bottles of immodiam a day.

Hello. Thank you for your post.

It's good you are under doctors care. Have they ruled out that you don't have some sort of intestinal parasite? Unfortunately, we cannot know. Have a good talk with your doctor. If you feel you need a second opinion about your condition, seek one.
