Selma showed me the link to this page from the Chiari forum. I'm not a hundred percent sure I have eds. I do know that I am double jointed and chiari and eds are commonly together. I am looking for actual tests for it. The chiari doctor said there was no test.
Did u get a chance to look at the video links on the top thread? The Dr that made the videos also has EDS and explains the diff types quite well.
There is testing to determine EDS...I know I had it ,....and if u google u will find it as well...another term for this is Joint Hypermobility or JHM...
