About

My name is Kristina.  I suffer from the disorder, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome.  Mast cells are one of the most basic forms of defense your body has.  In some people, the mast cells are overactive or a body has too many.  Some people have both issues.  Some of the most common symptoms of MCAS are:

  • Anaphylaxis
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Inflammation
  • Chronic Cough
  • Chronic Pain
  • And so many other symptoms.

The issue with this disorder is that it can affect every single system or organ in the body.  Everybody has different symptoms.  I’m going to be telling you about my life living with this disorder.  It’s harder than you might think.
