Welcome to Mastocytosis Society Canada support forum! Say hello and leave us messages here.....
april: My husband has been seeing a specialist at sunnybrook hospital in toronto however he keeps doing tests and says that there are no facts to support a diagnosis of mast cell activation syndrome however my husband is so ill and has majority of the symptoms. Jan 31, 2014 18:51:05 GMT -5
Carrie: Mastomom2 - email Delina directly here - fear5@mts.net :) Feb 5, 2014 0:39:45 GMT -5
Carrie: April - Ask the specialist to contact Dr. Peter Vadas at St. Mike's Hospital. MCAS is notoriously difficult to prove via medical tests. Dr. Vadas speaking with the doctor will help the process. I hope this helps. If not, come back and let us know. Feb 5, 2014 0:41:04 GMT -5
Frugalmama: Carrie - what diagnostic criteria does Dr. Vadas use to diagnose MCAS? Will he take out of province patients? I'm still trying to find someone that is wiling to help my mom. Feb 15, 2014 20:30:36 GMT -5
Carrie: Frugalmama, so sorry I'm very rarely here anymore. I'll email you :-) Feb 20, 2014 18:36:40 GMT -5
jessicaq: Is nose bleeds a symptom? My son has had a few recently and I'm not sure if it is masto related or maybe just the cold weather. Feb 24, 2014 17:15:04 GMT -5
Carrie: Yes nose bleeds can be a symptom. Could also be impacted by cold weather too. Feb 26, 2014 18:17:08 GMT -5
bindy55: My Biopsy and blood test Tryptase came back negative ...so do I want to progress to a Bone marrow test and why?? Mar 26, 2014 12:19:29 GMT -5
scrotzulla: Hi everyone.I'm new here and still waiting for a proper diagnosis.In my reactions lately, I'm getting severely dehydrated and my blood pressure drops significantly and I go into shock within a few minutes. What's the best thing to do in this instance? Apr 7, 2014 14:03:50 GMT -5
Paula: Ear meds? What medications are safe? or alternate treatment? Itchy/irritated/tinnitus/blocked Dr. prescribed a drop with Cipro. Concerned re adverse reactions as I have had many to meds. Apr 9, 2014 9:08:51 GMT -5
Mars: Does anyone else have lessions on their face? Anything work on them? Apr 22, 2014 18:33:51 GMT -5
kathy59: I am new here and was just told a skin biopsy was positive for TMEP and is being sent to another city for further testing. I am feeling very overwhelmed. Where do I start? Jun 17, 2014 22:23:09 GMT -5
kathy59: My skin biopsy came back as positive for mastocytosis as well the syrum tryptase test came back high so I am now waiting for a bone marrow biopsy. Should I be getting a medical alert bracelet now or should I wait until after the bone marrow biopsy? Aug 13, 2014 14:30:37 GMT -5
Carrie: Hi Kathy59, yes I would suggest you register with MedicAlert. To start, I've summarized (as best I can) how to live with this illness on MSC main website. Read http://mastocytosis.ca section on Mastocytosis and also the Patient Experience Letter. Aug 28, 2014 10:07:18 GMT -5
pamelamerritt: Where do I go to find out if there's another member in my area? I live in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sept 5, 2014 18:56:22 GMT -5
jessicaq: My son was just prescribed Dicyclomine. Does anybody take this? And if so has it helped much? Sept 12, 2014 15:53:14 GMT -5
Samson1484: I've been suffering from Mastocytosis for the past 16 years without a diagnosis despite having seen over 70 doctors. My worse symptom occurs whenever I eat/drink anything. Simple food contact on oral mucosa induces an intense systemic allergic-like reactio Sept 16, 2014 19:23:13 GMT -5
Samson1484: does anybody know of a specialist in Toronto, Ontario that recognizes or is open to a possible diagnosis and treatment of Mast cell disorders? Sept 16, 2014 19:25:08 GMT -5
sonamgirl: Hello: A quick question. I'm in the middle of being diagnosed and going for a skin biopsy in mid October. Should I start my prescription strength reactine and singulaire prior to seeing the dermatologist? Will these medications affect the results? Oct 1, 2014 10:36:05 GMT -5
tferguso: This question is for those with MCAD. I have a normal skin biopsy and normal tryptase, I need to know if any of you have found that the severity of your reactions and the number of triggers has increased over time? Mine have and I am concerned about it. Oct 20, 2014 8:05:07 GMT -5
