I had MCAS back in 2010. I was diagnosed Idiopathic Urticaria. I struggled everyday for 5 years head to toe. Clariton, Pepcid and occasional prednisone kept me from losing my mind. I was in menopause and had not had a period for 15-18 months. I had very stressful phone call from a business partner and believe it or not threw me into a full blown period. The entire week I bled I had NO HIVES not one. So that tells me there is a hormone element. As soon as the week was over hives came back with a vengeance. I started progesterone cream and this seemed to help.
I did know that one of my triggers was NSAIDS. I didn’t know that high histamine foods were players too. My doctor at the time insisted it was not food related. Now remember this was back in 2012ish. Well I look back and I was on a high histamine diet. I owned a health food store and I was a Certified Naturopath so I new I was eating clean. Now jump to 2024 and and I just started again after 8 years of being hive clear to a full blown MCAS. I know the triggers and I know that I triggered this myself. I have decided to do the same pill regimen as before but have included a lot of stomach aids and DAO. Heal the gut, clean the liver, and eat low histamine.

Hi Elizabeth, thank you for sharing your journey and insights. It’s incredible how our bodies respond to different triggers, and your experience with hormones and hives is fascinating. It’s great that you’ve found a regimen that helps, and your approach to healing the gut and eating low histamine sounds very wise. Wishing you continued success in managing MCAS and maintaining your health!
