This section is dedicated to Ehler-Danlos Syndrome support systems. Medical and FDA Disclaimers Below.
A Note About FB: Some pages will be:
“Public”= anybody can see them.
“Private”= you can “request” to become a member. Only other members can see what’s posted.
“Secret” =you need a “friend” to “invite” you to the group. Only other members can see what’s posted.
ALSO, try searching your symptoms on FB as well. (For example, there are groups concerning acid reflux and / or gerd.)
Support Group Disclaimer: Common Sense dictates that the following is now added: Please exercise caution when meeting new support groups. While we DO recommend finding LOCAL support groups for their vast knowledge of area-based wisdom (i.e. info on local doctors, therapist and such), we don’t want anybody meeting total strangers until they have done research on the group. Meet in public places. Take a friend. Safety First!
Please start with an area group! Search EDS and/or Ehler-Danlos combined with your area. If nothing comes up, try your closest large town or city. WE SUGGEST this because they may have an active “Physicians List” for you. They would be EDS savvy doctors of various backgrounds in the area.
