Hi everyone! Just wondering if anyone has a hypermobile Ehlers danlos diagnosis and what testing your doctors did to diagnose you? Also anything that helps manage joint pain?

      Hi! I have hEDS. My diagnosis was very fast and simple it seemed to the doctor. All my doctor had me do was a few test such as bending my fingers back or leaning down to put my flat hands on the floor. Not sure how it goes for other people so it could be completely different testing and such for you but that’s how it went for me. And to help with the pain, usually my ankles and knees bother me so i’ve got medical wraps for my ankles to keep them in place which seem to ease the pain a little bit. And for my knees i got some compression braces that you just slide over your knees to keep them in place and that seems to help to.
