I just very recently found out that the hypermobility I had always prized in a body that just seemed so lazy and unable to do what everyone else could as far as lifting and isometric exercise is actually eds. I am waiting to see a geneticist in august to find out exactly what kind. I do know that I have had a pounding headache for six years straight. Thanks to this site I found information on the neck support issues, bought a cervical collar and its done more then the largest amount of vicodin or migraine meds I was given did. Thank you for that.
But I am in somewhat of a state of shock because after combing the articles here and over other health information symptoms sites, I do see the symptoms on my maternal side of extreme flexibility but low movement, strength, and heart issues. But I see it my Ex-Mother, my grand mother, and my grandfather. I call her my ex-mother, because she raped and tortured me and there was a lot of molestation going on in the family and the trying to encourage me to sleep with my cousins.
I am a smart girl college educated and able to do statistical calculation and with a lot of medical knowledge. I calculate the odds of two unrelated people marrying and having eds of some form in each of their genetic codes but being unrelated before hand to be extremely small and the odds that the reason I was never allowed to ask how my grand parents met being that they were cousins to be very high.
Has anyone delt with something like this, what does it mean for my body which has never felt right both with motion and vascularly a bit.
I’m confused… I thought only one parent had to have the EDS gene to pass on, or be a carrier of, EDS for a child to inherit it. ??? Can someone help me out? Which is correct, one parent or both parents?
