I’m new to the Driscoll Theory, stumbled across it Monday. I’ve been diagnosed with POTS and ‘hypermobile joints’ (by my therapist); I see my rheumy in a few weeks to discuss EDS. I suspect I have EDS and am ready to start a few things already!!
I too have the angel wing pain and have for about 5-6 years now (which is when my daily, never ending headaches began). I’ve been ill enough to want an answer for 3 years now. However, I’ve been fainting since age 5 and just now realized joints aren’t supposed to bend like mine ;).
Hello my new friend! I imagine it may be hard to be thrown into all of this at once! I would recommend that you back up a bit and read The Driscoll Theory (Part 2 and a paperback with Parts 1 and 2 and an eye section, personal section and more are available through the “Store” at Prettyill.com — it will take you to Amazon). It will catch you up as to why most of us are dealing with hydrocephalus, mast cells gone wild, and the bad effects of weak veins affecting certain nerves, and what to do about it. Sound good? It’s like layers of an onion, but I think you will have many ahh-haa moments! Most of us are reducing our hydrocephalus with Diamox, which doesn’t work if you get too acidic. Your symptoms sound like EDS/POTS/The Driscoll Theory TO A TEE. Please let me know how you do once you get started, OK? big hug, Diana
