Hi, I have EDS, hypermobility type for sure, and had one child, 17 yrs ago.
If you’ve had a baby, can you share with me whether you did or didn’t get stretch marks due to your pregnancy? Personally, I didn’t get any, and I never rubbed oils, miracle creams or anything on my belly, back or hip areas. Stretch marks didn’t seem to run to highly in the many of the women in my family either.
I’m wondering if it’s another curious sign/indicator of how the faulty collegian affects sudden weight gain and then the loss of that additional weight.
Any stretch marks EDSers? You can answer with Yes- none, mild, moderate, heavy or sever if you’d like.
opps, sorry for the mis-placement of the post above… I guess I should have put it in EDS not POTS… I don’t now how to delete it, but I’ve going to repost it in the EDS topic area.
Well, I thought I would try to post it over there, but the msg board won’t let me post it. It says there is an error in my posting or something to that effect.
I have severe, wide, deep, stretch marks all over my body. The classic cigarette paper scars. They formed in my pre teens, but I did not get any new ones with my pregnancies.
