HI...I am not sure I understand ur question, but r u asking if this means EDS is causing ur leg weakness?....I am not sure this report can tell nething of EDS.....it may show the signs that some one may have EDS, but not the other way around.....
DO u have a rheumatoid Dr for ur EDS?....
There is a EDS group here on MedHelp....http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Ehlers-Danlos-Syndrome/show/417?camp=msc
U may want to join us : )
I have EDS syndrome hypermobility type diagnosed by a genetic doctor. i was wondering sence i have eds my doctor * genetic one* said it caused spine problems, Is that EDS syndrome hypermobility type seen with that back problems i posted. I asked my nueroligst hes not sure he dosnt know about EDS realy but the Genetic doctor is hard to get a hold of so i was wondering what back problems go with EDS. sence i have Ehlers- Danlos syndrome hypermobility type. The other qustion didnt have to do with EDS syndrome hypermobility type i was wondering the MRI result can it cause weakness or spasms by the results.
U would be better served going to a rhuematoid dr that specializes in EDS for ur spine issues for that, the geneticist may only be able to dx for u and not much more.
I also have EDS hypermobility type and have bulging disks and other issues with my spine, so I know how u feel.But most likely , yes, having EDS could be y u r dealing with this.
The spasms and weakness may be the EDS and could be if the spine issues r causing nerve impingement.
Have u had ne other dx's since ur EDS dx?
Hi there. Ehlar danlos syndrome is a group of inherited connective tissue disorders caused by a defect in the synthesis of collagen. The spinal deformities include scoliosis, kyphosis, tethered cord syndrome, and occipitoatlantoaxial hyper mobility. Your disc issues have to be checked in detail. You need to be assessed for a demyelinating disorder known as multiple sclerosis since you have muscle spasms too. The neurologist would be the best person to evaluate your neurological condition. Hope this helps. Take care.
I found this on the web at the following site...the link is included:
Note I added 2 **'s to indicate that muscle spasms can occur as a result of EDS and may not indicate u have nething more, although it is always goo d to rule all conditions with similar symptoms out.
Disease characteristics. Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), classic type is a connective tissue disorder characterized by skin hyperextensibility, abnormal wound healing, and joint hypermobility. It includes two previously designated subtypes (EDS type I and EDS type II) that are now recognized to form a continuum of clinical findings. The skin is smooth, velvety to the touch, and hyperelastic; i.e., it extends easily and snaps back after release (unlike lax, redundant skin, as in cutis laxa). The skin is fragile, as manifested by splitting of the dermis following relatively minor trauma, especially over pressure points (knees, elbows) and areas prone to trauma (shins, forehead, chin). Wound healing is delayed, and stretching of scars after apparently successful primary wound healing is characteristic. Complications of joint hypermobility, such as dislocations of the shoulder, patella, digits, hip, radius, and clavicle, usually resolve spontaneously or are easily managed by the affected individual.** Other features include hypotonia with delayed motor development, fatigue and muscle cramps, and easy bruising. Less common findings include mitral and tricuspid valve prolapse, aortic root dilatation, and spontaneous rupture of large arteries.
