I thought my joints were getting somewhat better because i could stand in the shower for a few minutes without feeling faint and falling...guess not, back to square one

      @Foxtail the main part of the post was the fact i can't stand for more than a few minutes anymore :/

      Feeling faint isn't a joints thing, it's a dysautonomia thing. Alot of people with EDS have POTS.

      Have you considered a shower chair? I can shower worlds easier since getting one, and they might have local programs that allow you to get one for free like how i got mine.

        @pepperpatch 100% !!! we moved in with my husband's grandma earlier this year to take care of her and around that time I started having problems being able to stand in the shower. Luckily she had an extra chair and it worked wonders. Now I have one of my own and it's a shower stool with an attachable back. Those things are amazing and have changed my life lol
