  1. Thank you for your responses! I still haven't tried gluten. Too risky right now with the pandemic. I do still want to pursue a second opinion, b/c there are too many grey areas with my Dx.
  2. Oh! The thought didn't even cross my mind that you were doubting my MCAS Dx! I was explaining more about my testing since that is a potential issue for you. There are specialists who will treat for MCAS even if the patient's test results come back negative, due to the symptoms. It's based on the...

  7. Good point about autoimmune disease being linked. I have RA and Graves. Wow. Sorry to hear about your health issues. Ok. So right before I had an endoscopy I was diagnosed and started treatment for MCAS by an immunologist. Over a year later, my GI doctor admitted that he actually believes my...
  8. I was diagnosed with celiac disease and have been gluten-free for about 19 months. My story is complicated and, as a result, I have doubts about my diagnosis. I asked to do a gluten challenge. My doctor said that if I do a gluten challenge I run the risk of staying sick even if I go back to gluten...
