What is Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome?
Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a condition that can affect the connective tissues in your skin, joints, and blood vessels to cause you to have overly flexible joints and fragile skin. In its most severe form, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome can cause the walls of your blood vessels, intestines, or uterus to rupture and can make it difficult for wounds to heal properly.
Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is associated with various genetic causes and tends to be hereditary.
While there is no cure for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, your doctor may prescribe pain and blood pressure medications to limit the condition’s impact on your blood vessels and joints. Your doctor may also recommend physical therapy to help strengthen and stabilize your joints.
