Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS)

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is the name for a group of rare inherited conditions that affect connective tissue.

Connective tissues provide support in skin, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, internal organs and bones.

There are several different types of EDS that may share some symptoms, including:

  • an increased range of joint movement (joint hypermobility)
  • stretchy skin
  • fragile skin that breaks or bruises easily
    (NHS)

Many people with EDS experience extreme fatigue.

As serious and debilitating as this condition can be, it is possible to see the funny side.  Check out this sketch by Angela Clarke at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe festival.
