Questions About Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome?
Hi there, I'm not sure yet if I have EDS or not, but I'm having a hard time finding support forums and places on the internet where I can talk to other people with EDS. However I'm very glad that I found this support forum. My skin bruises extremely easy and I have a huge problem with stretch marks. I haven't gained weight or had any of the issues that usually come with getting stretch marks. I am seeing an Endocrinologist at this point to rule out pituitary issues and cushings disease, but I can't find a good doctor to see about getting a diagnosis or ruling out EDS. In the past I have been to a lot of doctors and had some really bad experiences that have made going to a new doctor a total nightmare. On top of that I have developed severe PTSD due to the loss of my signifigant other. So I know that I NEED TO FIND A GREAT DOCTOR OR SPECIALIST TO DIAGNOS OR RULE OUT EDS BECAUSE I JUST CAN'T DEAL WITH GOING TO SOMEONE WHO SAYS THAT THEY CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHATS WRONG WITH ME OR THAT THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT I HAVE. So I guess I'm asking WHERE IS THE BEST PLACE OR DOCTOR TO GO TO WHO REALLY KNOWS A LOT ABOUT EDS AND WHERE ELSE ON THE INTERNET CAN I GO THAT HAS A FORUM AND OR PLACE TO CHAT WITH PEOPLE WITH EDS? SORRY ABOUT ALL THE CAPS.

Hi!  If you are anywhere near the East Coast, you should try to see Dr. Clair Francomano in Baltimore, and there is Dr. Brad Tinkle in Cincinnati. He's a pediatrician, but sees adults for EDS diagnosis.  These are the top two, that I know of.
There is tons and tons of information on the Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation Support Community on the inspire ******* website.  Hundreds of members, very eager to share information and stories.
