Mast cell activation (MCAS), Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) are three often debilitating conditions on their own, but it seems they're likely connected to one another.
Join me and Dr. Weinstock as he explains the symptoms of these conditions, how they're linked, and what the future looks like for treatment. Even if you're only dealing with MCAS or POTS, this episode is worth a listen.
