Hypermobility 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.
