I had heard that Fractures,Coordination problems,Autonomic nervous system dysfunction and Low blood pressure are some of the common symptoms that are mostly observed in MS and EDS.But I just want to know what exactly is the similarity in MS and EDS.
Hi Linda, I think we ALL want to know everything about the connections! Time and research will figure it all out. I have my theories and am informally “pilot testing” a couple of them. It’s looking promising… Symptom-wise, patients with EDS can develop extreme fatigue, weakness, intolerance to alcohol and other “triggers” (including stress, heat, exercise, certain foods, etc.). We can develop double vision, vertigo, dizziness, nausea, muscle wasting, endocrinology gone wild, depression, etc. Whew. Lots of overlap, and not just with M.S., but with chronic Lyme, chronic fatigue, “fibromyalgia” and again, I’ll just say “etc.” One of my missions is to figure out what is the same amongst us all and THAT should lead us to answers! Great question, 🙂
