Gotta love those "aha!" moments.

So, being the super-hypochondriac I am, I have been researching the hell out of mastocytosis. I've found a few blogs (which I need to add to my bloglines) and just reading some of their reactions as it related to this disease has given me some "aha" moments.

TMI warning - Like the time I was so sick I was vomiting and suffering horrific diarrhea (at the same time), severe flushing, back pain, fainting. Yes, I know it could have been a virus - but it also could have been a histamine load - it happened to me 2x.

Also, another masto sufferer mentions that she believes her masto was triggered after a reaction to an antibiotic. I had a horrible reaction to cephlesporin. Now I'm trying to remember if I had this issue with hives prior to that reaction. I really don't think I did.

In case you haven't figured it out - I'm a little freaked out by all of this. I'm given bits and pieces of info but no where to plug it in so it can make sense. I'm actually looking forward to talking to the hematologist.

  1. Have you tried any 'alternative' options.
    Like Reiki or Qi gong?
    I healed my infertility with these options and they can make a good addition to what the doctors have to offer. If nothing else they will definitely ease your anxiety.
    Best wishes to you on your journey to health.
