Please help does anyone here have hyperadrenergic pots POTS or mast cell activation syndrome?
Hello I have been diagnosed with CFS/ME and POTS am wondering if I also have Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. I heard that if you have CFS or POTS it means that you are more likely to have mast cell activation syndrome. I have the symptoms of CFS but also have some symptoms that I don't think are explained by CFS and could be MCAS. I am frequently very itchy and I get flushing sometimes. The flushing is all over my torso, arms, neck, and face. During the flushing episodes I feel horrible and get an increase in heart rate, increase in blood pressure, feel dizzy and nauseous, a tightness in my throat, shaky, and in a panic . These episodes seem to mostly triggered by eating large meals, heat, and walking around, and sex. They also happen when I get anxious and it will start feeling horrible. I have been having a big problem with anxiety but I think that my POTS and possibly MCAS could be causing this. Basically I think that any kind of physical or emotional stress cause the episodes. I should also mention that I think that the type of POTS I have is the hyperadrenergic POTS and I think that it is causing a lot of the symptoms. I have heard that MCAS can cause hyperadrenergic POTS and am wondering if anyone here has hyperadrenergic POTS or MCAS? DO you guys think that I have MCAS or just hyperadrenergic POTS?
