i have had flushing of face for a few years. Did alot of test and ntohing seemed to show up. I dont have diaherra and have had abdominal cramping every now adn then in past. Basically only symptoms i have his getting very hot easily in face and reddish tint to skin. I did the chromogranine A test and it was elevated. I am trying to talk to my doc but for some reason wont return my call. I have to do a 24 hr Urine HIAA and i assume if it comes back bad, i def have carcinoid. But i think she told me at doc office that the blood work done could be wrong. Not always right? But HIAA is usually right on. Is that right? I am under quite a bit of stress also. But if this isnt carcinoid, i think it has to due with allergies. I have severe dry eyes and it goes along with the flushing.

Also, if it is carciniod... i am only 28 male. Very healthy. Cure rate usually good for this? How do they go about it? Thanks..
