what's EDS? I have Fibro/Lupus/RA and Osteoporosis. I have had inflammatory fluid aspirated from both knees and cortisone shots in knees and soles of feet about four times this year. I snap, pop, and swell. shots worked better at first. now just reliving the pressure of the fluid helps for a while, but it just comes back. on orencia & typical handful of pills. physical therapy 2x a week (this does help). in central Texas.
ehler danlos syndrome, hypermobility type, though it can affect other areas critically if of another type. it gives you early onset osteoarthritis which makes your twenties feel like your eighties. I used to be a star athlete, using my hypermobile shoulders to my advantage on my varsity swim team. it was then that I first noticed it...my elbows were in excruciating pain from their 1o % of hypermobile range, so I adjusted my stroke and saved my elbows. my wrists! knees! and shoulders did not fare so well. I walk with a cane always! and I am 27 and slender. people stare at me sometimes and I know they are wondering....they used to ask, but now I have that look about me that I am PERMANENTly disabled, and people just pretend not to notice. I prefer when people compliment my colorful canes, not when they question me though, unless they are currently carrying a cane or using a walker. I own a walker but find it embarrassing to use since it ruins my good posture.
anyway, eds people also tend to have riskier pregnancies, but I hate kids so at least that's not a bummer!
