I have MAST CELL ACTIVATION DISEASE (diagnosed in 2017)

This answer was rated:

I have MAST CELL ACTIVATION DISEASE (diagnosed in 2017) which has become worse over time. I have multiple allergies and symptoms which are erratic and unpredictable in their effects. I suffer badly from tinnitus for example. I take two antihistamines a day and follow a low histamine diet. I have a healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly. Can any more be done to help me?
JA: How long have you been dealing with the ear issue? Have you had any colds or flus recently?
Customer: Several years. No colds or flu recently.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not really.

F. 80 yrs.old. I also have Notalgia Paresthetica. Only antihistamines, as mentioned.

These two conditions do not have very effective treatments even with the best that modern medicine can offer. :-(

If you want to make sure that no stone has been left unturned you could ask your GP to refer you to a large University Teaching hospital for a complete consult. At an institution like that you could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.

Does this make sense to you?

Thank you Dr. Rick. I agree totally with your answer. My GP didn't know about these two conditions and said basically it was up to me to find a consultant. These are very hard to find as there are so few in this field. However, I shall try the approach that you have suggested. Kind regards. June.
