      @hello.its.me yes that test I'm horrible with spelling but my genetics Doctor went through all family history looking for members diagnosed or who show signs and my medical history is quite extensive in it's self

      So I'm not uk based but my eds was diagnosed by a genetic doctor here in the states for us they focus on the bridginton test for bending and family/medical history most insurance won't cover the blood testing unless veds is suspected over all it's typically not painful but will take a long time if they go through everything mine was almost 2 hours long

        @Scarlet9904 is the bridginton test like the Beighton scale as I've already been assessed using that? In the UK, the blood tests will be covered by the nhs, so I will have them, most likely. Could I ask what took 2 hours though as I thought I would have a chat about my symptoms and then they would take blood samples. I'm not sure what would take so long?
