This study is looking into how we diagnose the rare condition Hereditary Angioedema. Patients who attend the Emergency Department with undiagnosed abdominal pain may be eligible for this study. Blood is taken and applied to a blood spot card. These are then analysed by the laboratory to see whether or not this is an effective way to diagnose the condition.
