Do you think Eating Disorders are common amongst those of us with EDS? Of the people I know with EDS, nearly all have had issues with an Eating Disorder, mostly Anorexia, but some Bulimia or BED. BTW, I have h-EDS, just to clarify. Also, I think maybe the explanation for the link is to do with gut issues and stress tolerance difficulties resulting from the EDS. What do you reckon? Like, I had gut issues long before my Anorexia: IBS, food intolerances, silent reflux. Maybe poor appetite too. And the stress connection: life with EDS just is more stressful for a variety of reasons.

Based on the shared experiences in the posts, it appears that there may be a connection between EDS and eating disorders. One user mentioned having Gastroparesis, a condition that slows or stops the movement of food from the stomach to the small intestine, which is a comorbidity of EDS. Another user mentioned having Binge Eating Disorder before being diagnosed with celiac disease. However, these are individual experiences and may not represent the overall population of people with EDS.
