SM, asymptomatic? BS.

I said in a blog entry this week that EDS sucks (with a graphic and everything). Isn't it the truth?

interesting about bone growth as opposed to soft tissue. is that true about all people or does it just affect EDS people in this way?

thanks for the comment.

I think it is true for all people. That was the
impression I got anyway and neither doc was referring specifically to EDS when the conversations took place.

I do wonder if it might be "more" true for EDS-ers however, simply because some of our soft tissue is in more use and more involved with our joints than in regular people. EDSers often have hypertrophic tendons and ligaments, so it makes sense to me that these would grow even more slowly and out-of-sync with bone growth than the garden variety connective tissue.

It explains (in my mind) why all kids get growing pains, but EDS kids seem to suffer more with them than most.
