I have pain in my neck and have had many joint surgeries, is this common in EDS?
Back and neck pain are a common report among patients
with all types of EDS. Pain often does not correlate with the presence
or absence of spinal deformity. Hypermobility type was the most
debilitating form with respect to musculoskeletal function. Surgical
procedures to the musculoskeletel system; shoulder, elbow, feet, knee,
or ankle due to pain, instability, poor range of motion, or a
combination of these are commonly seen. (Weinberg. et.al "Joint Surgery in EDS Patients: results of a survey").
