Mild EDS

(1 Post)

A child in my family was diagnosed with EDS 12 years ago. The whole family was checked, and I was diagnosed then, too, but I am clearly at the mild end of the spectrum. However, I'm now in my late forties and in the last six years have had various joint problems, all of which I'm susceptible to because of EDS. I have had successful surgery on one joint, and currently have tendonitis in three places, which is impacting on my life in many, albeit fairly minor, ways.
Everything I read on the net is about severe EDS. Does anyone else have multiple minor health niggles from mild EDS, and advice about managing the condition?
