Chemicals released by mast cells cause changes in your body’s functioning that lead to typical allergic responses such as flushing, itching, abdominal cramping, and even shock. When too many mast cells are in your body, the additional chemicals can cause

  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Ulcers
  • Diarrhea
  • Skin lesions

It can also cause episodes of hypotension (very low blood pressure and faintness) or anaphylaxis (shock).
