    Hi @mariajayne16 - Welcome to the community & thank you for joining. I'm a little similar in that I have the hypermobile type of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome + neuropathic pain (from Complex Chiari I Malformation) & orthostatic intolerance at least, or PoTS. :( If you find the cure, please share it!
    Anyway, it's good to 'meet' you, & I hope you enjoy being part of this community. :) Please have a look around, & join in any discussions. If you have any questions, do say.
