Ehlers Danlos and Photosensitivity???

I have developed extreme photosensitivity and am hypermobile. Has anyone heard of extreme photosensitivity presenting with Ehlers Danlos?

I have a lupus like face rash, but the naso folds are not spared. I get extreme hives (chronic, cholinergic, dermatographic). I have developed asthma and get asthmatic bronchitis often. I have Reynauld's, Livedo Reticularis and break out on my neck and chest when stressed. I have extreme fatigue and joint pain. I have digestive issues - nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. I have severe flares 1 1/2 weeks prior to my menstral cycle. If I am stressed, I get flares other times as well. Before August 2008, I had none of these symptoms. My ANA is negative - I have been tested for all of the normal and many of the not so normal autoimmune disorders.
