I an confused about how depression works with Mast cell. Is it like a one time thing, ongoing or just an impending sense of doom?

    Does it spike during reactions?

    I've never read anything about depression spiking during MCAS flares, but I do know for me, that when I'm an itchy nauseous mess, I am definitely more depressed and unhappy than usual. It makes sense.

    Mine is coming with the episodes. Usually not alone

    Does it seem to be just related to the MCAS? Chronic illness related depression is absolutely a thing, it's one of the most common complications. If you can, find a therapist who has treated this sort of depression before.

    Anxiety is a known MCAS reaction. My depression gets really bad with flares too but to my knowledge that’s due to the mind-body connection rather than a proven symptom of MCAS
