I'm 25, female and just trying to survive. I have had multiple procedures done, most recently upper and lower endoscopies. My gastroenterologist found an excessive amount of mast cells in my colon and started me on Pepcid twice a day. He said to see him in a month. I have been reading and have come to the seemingly correct conclusion that I might have some sort of mast cell disorder. But, I haven't been diagnosed and I'm not sure that my gastroenterologist is even looking in that direction. After my research I would think he would have me come in to check my blood for tryptase but he didn't. My symptoms fit, I have excessive mast cells, and It's been 5 plus years of this. I'm ready to know what I'm fighting!
My questions; should I see another doctor and what type is best for this? If he doesn't bring it up should I?
