Hi there. It took 10 years to get my daughter diagnosed with EDS by a geneticist. Apart from the constant pain and subluxations she is starting to get bladder and heart issues. Do you have any recommendations of specialists (not physio or OT), more rheumatologist, geneticist etc who understands EDS. We are also wondering if there's a procedure to stop her hip from constantly 'slipping'. Thank you. Look forward to hearing back from you :) My daughter is 19 years old.

And as not all Dr's are versed with EDS I have found the literature on line. Also your voice can change,swallowing and speech can all be affected.  Any advice????JanetSee More
