Mast cell activation syndrome is a condition that most doctors have never heard about, yet it is an important cause of illness that is underrecognized and, as a result, misdiagnosed. It belongs in the category of chronic inflammatory illnesses with symptoms including fatigue, allergy-like symptoms and problems with virtually every organ system in the body. Dr. Lawrence Afrin is a leading scientist and clinician on mast cell activation syndrome. Dr. Afrin is based out of the University of Minnesota and the author of the book Never Bet Against Occam, a book detailing his clinical experiences and knowledge of this mysterious disease.
