There are two forms of EDS, Congenital and Acquired. In both cases, the connective tissues are weak, causing a host of symptoms and signs listed below. The congenital form is a rare genetic disoreder, while the newer “acquired” form is often associated with many of the complaints of the ME/CFS and related communities.
Symptoms of EDS:
hypermobility of joints
lack of structural integrity of internal organs, including aorta, gut, etc.
hypotension, with consequent fatigue, fainting, etc., progressing to:
POTS (postural orthstatic tachycardia syndrome)
