Does anyone else find that they really dislike having their legs straight when sitting or lying down?
I always feel the need to have my knees bent and was wondering if it's a me thing, or an eds thing. Haha.

    I do this! I always sit criss cross apple sauce, and my physical therapist said normally people find that very uncomfortable.

    Oh my goodness! Yes! I swear sitting with my legs “normally” is so much more uncomfortable! I’m laying in bed right now and my legs are crossed

    It's like a compulsion for me to bend my knees... And then later I'm in pain from having my knees bent for so long!

    Yes! My PCP said this is a sign of restless leg syndrome which is not uncommon with EDS

    Sameeee!! I was just thinking about this, gets annoying cause I just can’t get comfortable no matter what I do but usually end up with knees bent or crossed didn’t make a connection to Eds though but makes sense cause of the joint pain

    Yes especially if you’re on your back bc it accentuates the anterior tilt of the pelvis which can be a lot on the lower back
