Do you have widespread pain? Do you also have allergy symptoms like itching, hives, or wheezing? Did you know that allergy symptoms and bodily pain are both symptoms of a common condition?
If any of these questions resonate with you, you could have Mast Cell Activation syndrome (MCAS), a condition that causes both pain and allergy symptoms. MCAS is a common condition that may impact up to 17% of the population.
If you have never heard of MCAS, that's because MCAS is a condition that is only gaining widespread recognition in the past decade or so through a recent boom in research. There are many doctors who are not familiar with MCAS, but as research grows on the condition, doctors are becoming aware of how and when to diagnose it.
If you have allergies and pain symptoms, you may have never thought about how these two seemingly unrelated symptoms might be a sign of a single condition. If you have MCAS, or think you might, we encourage you to learn more about a clinical trial opportunity we are holding at our clinic.
