Mastocytosis, I had never heard of this either. The links are interesting reading especially for folks who may not have had complete resolution of problems gluten-free. I wonder which genes this is associated with they mention finding them but not the ones they are. Curiosity will most likely make me look further. I am wondering if that reaction could cause a thickening of the intestinal wall and swelling. That was found on my last CT and is something that has been with me since my diverticullitis attack. Thanks for posting this, if nothing else it is interesting reading.

I read that first link when I stumbled on this by accident, BUT the second one with the reference to "orphan diseases" made me take notice. There is a doctor at Cleveland Clinic who specializes in "orphan diseases" ---I forget his name--starts with a W, I think. I am wondering if maybe your next course of action would be to try to get to see him. Ask your primary doc if he can refer you and find out who this doctor is. I read an article about him a few years ago and he is a life saver for a lot of people, from what I read.

I hope to God this helps you and others who are still suffering. Hugssss.

THANKS TO BOTH OF YOU

YOU KNOW ROBBIN, THIS MAZABRAUD SYNDROME I HAVE IS A ORPHAN DISEASE..

THERE WERE ONLY 80 DOCUMENTATED MEDICAL JOURANAL PUBLICATIONS WHEN I WAS SEARCHING FOR MY DOC WHEN I WAS WORKING IN 1999.

TAKING A BREAK FROM RESEARCH TODAY.

BUT HOPE MAYBE SOME OTHERS WILL SEE THIS AND KNOW ABOUT IT.

found this in this article.

Mast cells seem to have other roles as well. Found to gather around wounds, they may play a part in wound healing. For example, the typical itching you feel around a healing scab may be caused by histamine released by mast cells. Researchers also think mast cells may have a role in the growth of blood vessels

Maybe this can be why this area where the heating pad burned me and hasn't really had the lymph system heal...could be the reason listed here.

wow amazing to me.
