I have Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and have been getting Xolair for a year. I now have allergic arthritis from the shot. Has anyone experienced this and have ways they dealt with pain in every joint? I am allergic to most medicine so I need alternatives to medication.

      Do you have an mcas specialist?

      I suggest seeing a functional medicine doctor!

      Sounds like issues with salicylates (turmeric is high in them). Nettle Leaf Extract has been very helpful for me in dealing with reactions due to salicylates.

      That’s the weird part. I took turmeric and within an hour I had the arthritis show up. I was trying to stop my GI symptoms maybe it was just a coincidence. My gi symptoms are better but now I have this going on.

      What you are likely looking for are natural cox-2 inhibitors. Things that work on the same receptors as NSAIDs but aren’t them. Ginger and turmeric are likely the most well known but Omega 3 also has evidence of working. There are others as well.
