My health has slowly been in decline for several years. It started with multiple dislocations and chronic pain. I was told these were because I had Joint Hyper mobility Syndrome. Also shortly after I developed Asthma at 15 years old with absolutely no history of it! I coped for years but over the past two years my health has declined to include muscle pain, IBS/ urine problems , faintness, vertigo and light-headedness, easy bruising that sometimes turn into dark patches. My arms and legs also fall asleep scarily quick.
Now Ehlers Danlos is a condition that has been mentioned several times but I honestly feel that doctors can't be bothered to diagnose. Does this sound like Ehlers-Danlos?My local GP treats me like a pest because I have been constantly pestering them for the past 7 years over this since I was 14.
Also I don't know if this is just me but whenever I think about having EDS or JHS I just think 'Nah, I can't' even though the signs point quite clearly. I always doubt my fatigue, am I just horrifically lazy? the dizziness, am I being over dramatic? ect.
I'm 21, at university and I'm starting to really struggle mentally with this, doubting myself. What do you guys make of these symptoms?
