The following You Tube video was recently posted on the Canadian Mastocytosis Support Group website. I want to share it with you here because THIS is what my emergency situation often looks like, but sometimes mine appears worse. However, it's ALL life-threatening, as you will see here. I've learned from this video to stop being a 'hero' and waiting until it all gets much worse than this to call for help. Remember that this girl in this video HAS ALREADY used her Epi, which is why her symptoms are subsiding, for now...and I'm not quite sure how she feels so fabulous when she leaves the hospital, I feel like death for days, sometimes weeks.
The other video I'm posting is for the Uticaria Pigmentosa form of this disease. I 'flush' or get red and blotchy they way that Baby Candice does. And those benign 'tumours' that burst, I've had and get those too. They only appear during a reaction and takes weeks to go away. They itch like hell.
