Dana study the web and be prepared to state why you feel you have EDS.  Even though rheumatologist treats EDS they don't all know what it is.  A good rheum Dr. will check you thoroughly and you need to tell them when you feel any pain.  I last time asked about something when we were done and he said your pain level was not bad at that location.  I said no that location hurts me more than any you did not ask and I can tolerate a lot of pain.  When they are pushing on your trigger points they need to know any discomfort.  I recently have went back to my rhuematologist  and feel like treatment is helping yet EDS is tough to get diagnosed and tough to get treated.   I also have osteoarthritis from EDS and allover trigger point pain.  Good luck!
