How would I know if I have EDS?

There are several tests that can be performed at home before making an appointment to be diagnosed with EDS. Here are some common signs and symptoms to look for:

•    Double Jointed Tricks
•     Flexibility
•    Orthostatic Hypotension (blacking out when standing too quickly)
•    Hyper elasticity of the skin
•    Irritable Bowel

These are just a few of the signs you may have EDS.

When should I see a Physician about being diagnosed with EDS?

After watching the video or reading the common signs, and a few of these pertain to your situation you should get an evaluation with Dr. Chorley.  

Dr. Chorley will further exam you to decide whether or not to continue the diagnosis of EDS with you.

Why does it matter?

EDS can be a life-altering disease for some patients. The first step to take is being diagnosed. Many patients have been able to live a completely renewed lifestyle. Knowing you have EDS can ultimately change the way a patient’s body is viewed when having health issues, surgeries, and so much more.
