Just came across a study from 2019 linking MCAS (or at least heavy mast cell activity) with osteoarthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis had already been linked in previous studies. So I am curious now - has anyone with MCAS and arthritis ever had a doc acknowledge the link, or attempt to treat arthritis of either kind with antihistamines or mast cell stabilizers? (Since erosive osteoarthritis has zero effective treatments right now - I am considering bringing this up with the EDS specialist I’ve been waiting 8 months to see in October.)
