I have been having facial, abdominal, and throat swelling since December 26, 2011. At first I thought it was food allergy because it would occur near times that I had eaten or while eating. I had a 74 panel food allergy test that came back negative so the doctor sent me to get blood work. The doctor’s office called today and said all the blood work came back normal except the C4 count which was too low. I was asked to come back up there in a week or so to repeat the blood work. I do have an epipen just in case my throat starts closing up more than it has so far.
Has anyone else had a low C4 count with POTS?
I can’t say that I have personally, but a couple of folks I know deal with it. They are wondering about Lupus, but I think it may be a reflection of our over-zealous inflammatory cytokines… Hmmm. Of course, one blood test does not a disease make, my friend. I saw your bio, and I think you will SOOO benefit from Part 2 of The Driscoll Theory. Hang in!
