  • My daughter is 15 and was recently told she has EDS III . she has had no genetic testing as of yet.We have been dealing with the symptoms of so many things the last 13 have been hell. no sleep, pain, broken bones torn tendon an dislocations of shoulder knee, wrists and fingers, plus sever back pain ,celiac and IBS since 2years old many allergies she was preemie 8 months and now painful periods .. We are seeing a pain Dr Kahn who has her on Cymbalta 60 mg and a Dr Guwenter for the arthritis pain and doing pt for her pain an mobility issues she dislocates, my question is her peds Dr. Melanie Caldwell has dealt with all her issues for the last 5 years but does not really have a handle on the EDS, so her symptoms get treated but no changes like: migraines neck pain so bad she uses a brace to sleep at night and body pain feeling sick all the time like mono little to no eating and dizzy and light headed, heart racing , nausea, diminished eating, depression an panic attacks , she is seeing a Dr. Simon for that and was on Prozac 20 mgs but changed to the Cymbalta to handle the mixed issues. I guess I feel she and her PPC still has no clue why she is so sick and unable to do more then one thing a day and the pain is none stop she is doing the pt twice weekly and daily and at home, but I feel she is having such bad reactions the day after that she lands back in bed and worse and then we go again …. what do I do next I feel I am still so in the dark my self and have read and gone to groups but feel lost.
