Mastocytosis Mistaken for Aspergers

One of the features I have in this blog is that I get to see what search terms people use to find this site.  Sometimes these search terms tell you some very interesting things.

Here is one such interesting search, somebody used today:-

    mastocytosis mistaken for aspergers

Even though I expect 90+% visitors to this blog are interested in more severe types of ASD than Asperger's, much here is likely to be applicable to some people with Asperger's.

There are several posts in this blog about the role of mast cells and how allergies cause them to degranulate.  In some people mast cell degranulation actually leads to pain.  Some people have an over-expression of mast cells, this is called Mastocytosis.

I made by own theory about seasonal autism flare-ups and mast cells, which I called Seasonal Autistic Mastocytosis.

Now we know that at least one person thinks their mastocytosis was mistaken for Asperger's.
