    From what I know vEDS shows up in genes hEDS doesn’t and vEDS is more serious but there’s also many types of EDS with varying symptoms and severities I hope that was helpful it might just take some research to fully understand

    EDS society has good descriptions of each type on their page. Vascular type is more severe vascular issues. HEDS doesn't really have as much of that. POTS is thought to be neurological/ nervous system dysfunction, but it can be related to some level of venous inssufficeincy I believe... however vEDS is more about fragility of organs that are prone to rupture
