could tinnitus be related to my mastocytosis/ also, I'm at a loss as to what I can eat to make this better. I figure it has to be a low histamine diet. I was hoping for a nutritionist that could help me out also.
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 10 months ago

What type of doctor diagnosed this, and why are you not being treated?

Or are you?

I do not do phone calls and I did not suggest one. That was site automation.

If you want to wait to see if another expert calls, that is fine.

If you would like to continue here, just let me know.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
