hi , I just turned 21 and have had a stark uptake in eds symptoms and am trying to figure out if this is common or if there's certain ages it tends to be worse? I'm also wondering if the increase in symptoms could be caused by weight gain. so if anyone has experienced something similar I would appreciate any advice/stories.
Dislocations of Joints
Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)
I haven’t gained weight, but my Eds had gotten progressively worse as I age
It’s like a circle. EDS makes it hard to exercise. We gain weight which then makes some symptoms and pain worse. I completely understand I struggle with gaining too much/losing weight. But the pain just seems so debilitating that I just don’t have the energy to move out of bed somedays.
