I think I better call to make sure the referral went through! I did see the allergist/immunologist, and he said all of the pictures were extremely helpful. Especially of the red rash on my hands and what looks like a solid red line at my wrist. Unfortunately I was so dizzy when I was there, but I did not answer his questions very well. Based on the bloodwork and 24 hour urine that he ordered, he is testing for mast cells and mastocytosis-are these the same thing?
Right at the moment, the condition on my hands is dormant and has been so for about a week. The wounds are healing but I do have scars, and last night the red rash started up again, but very mild. When I have these periods of remission, I feel at least 75% better and I can function; life is not so difficult.
