Can Mastocytosis affect ones eye sight? My daughter has been diagnosed with MS but they have found absolutely no lesions. She seems to have many other symptoms that point to Mastocytosis. I guess my question is can MS be misdiagnosed in place of Mastocytosis?
I don't know about Mastocytosis, but I do know that Lyme disease has been misdiagnosed as Multiple Slcerosis. To view the symptoms of Lyme disease, see ILADS.org. You can also watch the documentary Under Our Skin for more information regarding Lyme. Lyme can cause lesions in the brain as well, but unlike MS Lyme has a known cause and treatment. Unfortunately, current Lyme tests miss 50% of positive cases. The diagnosis of Lyme is clinical with labs as supportive.
