To those of y’all that have been professionally diagnosed, how was the process? I’m getting evaluated later this month for hEDS and my whole family is 90% sure I have it as am I. What should I expect?
Psychogenic non epileptic seizure
Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)
There’s a chance they say you don’t have it… keep pushing though. It’s a long process with many false negatives
I ended up having to get genetic testing done before getting my hEDS diagnosis, but before EDS was even though of, I got tested for pretty much anything else
I initially saw a geneticist that was kind of an idiot. Although I met criteria, he was hesitant to dx me because he was afraid my hypothyroidism or vegan diet were causing my symptoms. He also thought I was having seizures. He referred me to a neurologist who told me it wasn’t seizures it was dysautonomia (and did testing for it) and confirmed that I have EDS.
