Ehlers Danlos Syndrome type 3 is a condition when the joints are able to stretch/move further than they should be able to, enabling the joint to have an unusually large range of movement. It is a rare condition and not always diagnosed straight away. For some it can be rather hard to live with due to the fatigue it causes and the long-term pain. Having EDS on top of Dystonia, really is not nice. However I still count myself to be extremely lucky as I know some people have only EDS and are fighting a harsher battle than me! There are several types of EDS each with their own sets of symptoms and problems.

EDS type 3 and joint hypermobility syndrome can sometimes be hard for Drs to distinguish between. One of my close friends suffers from Hyper-mobility syndrome badly. It causes her many issues, and she finds herself having to do battle with the NHS constantly. For those of you who would like to a closer glimpse into living life with Hyper-mobility syndrome I suggest you check out her blog http://livingandsucceedingwithhms.blogspot.co.uk/ .
