Mast Cell Activation Disorder
I need help. My doctor told me that he thinks a lot of my problems are caused by Mast Cell Activation Disorder but that I have too many problems he needs to solve before we can get to that; he says “one thing at a time.” I understand that completely but I need help on trying to get myself on a diet that helps me.

bunnika: sasha-smithy: bunnika: Because in the weeks when I don’t really have to do anything, when I can spend the vast majority of my time at the computer or in front of the TV, just being lazy, I usually feel okay.

My first Ambulance Experience
I’m writing this to share my story with other people who suffer from POTS and other chronic illnesses and to ask what you guys think may have caused this. Last night I was having bad heart palpitations.
