May is EDS Awareness Month

Researchers say 1 in 2500 to 1 in 5000 people have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS). EDS is a connective tissue gene disorder that basically means that the collagen in your body isn't structured correctly.  Yes, this can cause a lot of problems anywhere that collagen is found - skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments, blood vessels, organs, gums, eyes....

I was lucky to get diagnosed quickly so that I could manage my symptoms and do things to protect my body.  Because so many aren't aware of EDS and its how it effects multiple body systems - many aren't diagnosed for years. This is why EDS awareness is so important, and you can help spread the word.
