I must confess I was a little disappointed by this presentation. Dr. Tinkle was one of the first people I read when I was learning about JHS/EDS and I highly respect his knowledge and authority. But all the illustrations in this presentation depicted extreme cases of joint hypermobility. I think this reinforces for many ill-informed health care professionals that only circus freaks suffer; that unless a patient scores 9/9 on the Brighton, they’re not afflicted. Connective tissue damage and deterioration can happen on a much more subtle scale, too, but this tends to get overlooked because the extreme cases are more “interesting” to look at. By the time one reaches my (middle) age, much of the obvious hypermobility is gone, but the pain and damage remain forever. I don’t see myself in most of the case studies and photos around the web — only the extreme examples are shown. One need only look around the web to see the stereotype propagated again and again, and I believe this contributes to why so many of the rest of us go undiagnosed for so long. It’s up to the leaders in this field to help correct the misinformation.
Dr. Tinkle reviewed/approved the “Hiding in Plain Sight” Brochure with NO pictures just descriptions of Our EDS conditions.
