collagen vi spectrum disorder
I am new to this board and am posting for the first time.
I have Bethlem Myopathy (or as my doctors prefer to call it, a collagen vi spectrum disorder). I have had contractures and general muscle weakness my whole life, but was only correctly diagnosed this past year through genetic testing. I do not experience muscle pain or fatigue; there are just some things I cannot do easily, like climb stairs without leaning heavily on a railing or stand from a low chair without leaning on something.
I am curious to learn others' experiences. In addition, my husband and I are planning to start a family (we are undergoing PGD, which should prevent passing along the condition), and I am very interested to learn about other womens' experiences with pregnancy.
Thanks so much!
