Low plasma levels from Crohn's?

Ok wow it's been ages since I've been on. Things have been crazy health wise and I've had so many hospital stays and ER trips. Sorry for being MIA. I've got a question. I've recently developed orthostatic intolerance that lead to a week in hospy. My doctors were originally thinking it was auotonomic nervous system related, like POTS. However, a dysautonomia specialist just reviewed my case and said it doesn't match up with POTS at all. He thinks I have Crohn's related low plasma levels that have been causing all my symptoms (fainting, inability to stand due to heart racing and dizziness, incredibly high heart rate and low blood pressure). Any one heard of this before?:eek2: I should mention I also have been suffering from severe hypokalemia.
