MCAS Hiding in Plain Sight?

Synopsis: I rapidly became ill. Twice a day I would have an episode… burning in my abdomen, wrenching pain, nausea, bloody diarrhoea, flushing. I saw dozens of doctors, going in circles, getting increasingly desperate. I was told my symptoms were medically inexplicable and was diagnosed with a Somatisation disorder.

There are virtually no NHS doctors focusing on this condition but many private clinics.
