The original story appeared on their Texas local TV station. We appreciate Channel 8’s  follow-up report – including corrections to misinformation in the original report. Ehlers-Danlos is a Connective Tissue Disorder, not a bone disease. Although bone fractures can be associated, they are not the most common symptom of EDS. Bria Huber’s symptoms are actually more typical of an EDS sufferer (compared to her daughter’s bone fractures).  The mother says, “I had all these crazy symptoms throughout my life,” she says. “I can dislocate any joint in my body.”  Learn more about EDS symptoms under the “About EDS” section on this website.

X-rays revealed “multiple fractures.” Doctors ruled them “non-accidental injury” and diagnosed “suspected physical abuse of a child.”    STORY CONTINUED”… Click here to see the ORIGINAL REPORT video
