    Hi @peachysaryna and welcome to the Community.  How are you?  It's nice to meet you.  I hope you enjoy your time with us on the forum and find it helpful.  If you have any questions for us or would like some help/support with anything then please just let us know.

    Meantime, I believe that one of our members, @chiarieds, has knowledge of ehlers danlos syndrome, so I will tag her in to connect with you and I'm sure she will get in touch with you.   All the best.  :smile:

    Hi @chiarieds, I thought you may be the best person to support/advise this new member, if ok?  Thanks, @Ails:smile:

    Hi @peachysaryna - Welcome to the community. I've also got Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (hypermobile type, or hEDS) & Chiari 1 Malformation, hence my user name (Chiari +eds = chiarieds)!
    Have you joined our EDS Support group? See: https://www.ehlers-danlos.org/
    Here we have a very friendly & supportive community, with quite a few members with EDS, so I hope you enjoy joining in with any discussions, or just chatting here. Please let us know if we can help in any way too. :)
    Thank you @Ails; we were both replying at the same time!
