May is Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Awareness Month
*PLEASE READ AND DO NOT DELETE TEXT*
Ehlers Danlos Syndrome involves many different types and severity’s, some rarer than others. EDS can range from very mild to life threatening as the collagen defect can cause ruptures and tears in the organs and blood vessels.
Some sufferers of EDS will never know they have it, others will know but it won’t affect them, and for some people, EDS will take over their lives.
Ehlers Danlos Syndrome can cause disability, illness, pain and ultimately death. But as it is so rare, it often goes untreated or the patient receives an inaccurate diagnosis. I was given four different diagnosis’ before we were told it was EDS.
This is why sufferers of this condition need your help.
The month of May is Ehlers Danlos awareness month, spread this photo, share your own knowledge to give the world a better understanding of this horrific genetic condition.
