The patient has history of mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), as well as Ehlers-Danlos (EDS) syndrome. This study was indicative of mild postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS), most likely a hyperadrenergic variant which is associated with elevated orthostatic catecholamines. Both EDS and MCAS syndromes are clustered with dysautonomia.
