Can a dislocation be not very painful? My thumb slipped sideways when I was getting up and putting a fair amount of pressure on it, but it only hurt (not badly, like maybe a 5/10) for a few minutes and now I can't feel any pain (except for some motions like curling it a lot). Could that be a dislocation and should I be worried? I've dislocated my kneecaps before and my left didn't hurt badly both times (it more just slipped out). I'm pretty sure I have eds but haven't been diagnosed yet (planning to ask my dr soon).

      If you do happen to have hsd or eds, I would say dislocations or partial dislocations (subluxations) can just happen with not much pain. Sometimes things are just so lax that they can just slip up! I wouldn't be too worried about it, but definitely I would suggest bracing up afterwards or doing your best to stabilize joints during activities that tend to trigger this.

Yes, a dislocation can be not very painful, especially for individuals with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). Some EDS patients can experience dislocations or subluxations that are less painful and can even put the joint back in place themselves. However, it is essential to consult your doctor about any new symptoms and seek proper treatment and care.
