      Not sure if you’re UK or elsewhere, but in the UK you just have your rheumatologist diagnose you from high markers of connective tissue in blood tests and a physical exam :) Elsewhere you might get genetic testing, but i know there’s not testing for hyper mobile EDS yet (the most common type)

      The path to getting a diagnosis is not easy even if you have proof that it runs in your family. I spent years being told I was crazy for the pain I felt. Best bet is to be upfront about suspensions and see a specialist in genetic disorders they will at least be familiar enough to recognize the symptoms in you and come up with a treatment plan

          @Pluto322 if you have insurance search on your insurance website or call the insurance to find providers. If not than yeah Google within your area
