Re: ehlers danlos syndrom ques...

hello there!! I was just recently diagnosed with EDS type III and the doctors have me on mobic for the inflammation, tramadol and Vicodin for the pain. Here soon I plan to begin physical therapy, which will help strengthen the muscles around my joints in hopes to provide more support for them, since I also have degenerative joint disease. Physical therapy, pain management, and emotional support are the primary treatments for EDS. I am currently looking into johns Hopkins connective tissue disease department, but the wait is 4-6 months. Its ironic that I found this post, since I too am here searching for information. It is so difficult to find anything on this awful, awful disease. I know I couldn't offer much, since I too have so many questions, but I do hope I was able to help. Good Luck and God bless!!
