I'm finding it difficult to find any braces that can help my joint instability without cause even more pain.Any firm constriction around any joint on my body hurts almost as much as the joint itself. Pressure points under braces leave bruises and the fabric causes rash.... Anyone else in similar shoes? I'm at a bit of a loss here

      The only thing I could think of is making or modifying a brace. I have something for my knee that's just a cushion that wraps around my leg and holds my kneecap up. It's not the strongest but it helps when sleeping

      That makes sense. I’m sorry, that is awful. I wish I could help but I’m at a loss too. I wish you the best ❤️

      I've tried compression and KT tape. The problem is I have the fragile skin kind of EDS, so tape will remove skin and compression causes skin rash after a while

      Have you tried compression braces?

      i’m having the same issue! i recently dislocated my knee and it seems the brace just causes more pain and bruising. you can try using KT tape to help stabilize with less pain, but i’m not sure it will give you as much support as a brace! hopefully others have some solutions!
