Hypermobile Type of EDS

hypermobility.jpg.w300h216Hypermobility Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is the most common type of EDS. It was formerly called Type III. Hypermobility Type (also knows as Joint Hypermobility Syndrome) is distinguished from the Classical Type chiefly by milder and fewer skin and soft tissue manifestations. The diagnosis of EDS, Hypermobility Type is based ENTIRELY on clinical evaluation and family history. This mutated gene is currently unknown and therefore cannot be tested.

Just like other EDS symptoms, they include joint hyper-mobility (double-jointed) or dislocations (popping out of place), muscle pain, and easy bruising. All Types of EDS may also include Digestive issues, Spine issues, or Vascular EDS issues and need to be aware and checked on a regular basis.

A friend told me to look into this and I’m grateful to learn more and be aware of why not only me, but my children are fragile. Please tell someone about EDS because they may not have the answers. They may need you. 1 in 5,000 are diagnosed with EDS, but because of the number of people that are misdiagnosed or go undiagnosed, it is estimated that it is 1 in 2,500 people. I am definitely not the only one…
