Carcinoid Syndrome Symptoms

Carcinoid Syndrome Symptoms

Carcinoid syndrome is rare and can be difficult to diagnose, as it causes symptoms that are similar to other conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn's disease, or menopause. When serotonin levels in your gut are out of control, it can cause you to have multiple life-disrupting symptoms. These symptoms can affect your daily life, and long-term health, as well as emotional and psychological well-being.

Serious complications of carcinoid syndrome include:

  • Wheezing
