Episode 4: Let's Talk Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

In this episode, we discuss all things Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. EDS is a group of usually inherited connective tissue disorders characterized by joint hypermobility, skin hyperextensibility, and tissue fragility. Symptoms vary, but can include widespread joint and muscle pain, walking difficulty, dislocations and subluxations, poor wound healing, problems with the GI system, heart, dysautonomia, headaches, mouth symptoms, sleep, and much much much more. Diagnosis is tough but is sometimes made via genetic testing or clinical symptoms. Treatment varies depending on the symptoms and the clinical manifestations.
