Yes: If your Drs are smart enough to diagnose urticaria pigmentosa, or cutaneous mastocytosis, they can guide you through all the associated symptoms. They can also [bone marrow?] check for systemic mastocytosis. Your Drs should be able to answer all your questions and evaluate all your symptoms.

A 41-year-old member asked:

How can I measure bouts of diarrhea from irritable bowel syndrome so my doctor knows how bad?

Keep a log: One way would be to keep a record of dates and times of the events. This may also help with identifying any patterns, especially if certain foods are being eaten or certain stressors encountered frequently when the bouts are especially bad. By keeping the record you have an accurate log of events and do not have to try to remember which can sometimes be difficult if there are many.

Ice: Try to limit the pain killers. Usually an absolute max is 8/day. It depends on the drug and the strength. Cold packs for 15-20 minutes at a time can help. There are many different meds to try if the 1 you are using is not effective.

Pediatrics 33 years experience
Need full evaluation: A person with hearing problems since age 5 years will have had evaluations by her pediatrician or primary care doctor, been referred to an audiologist for complete testing, and been seen by an ENT doctor to find out if there is any correctable disorder causing the hearing problems. If these things have not been done, she should write down her story and take it to her primary care doctor to start.
