Angel, I'm so glad the doc believed in you.
Gongrats on your dx!
I have met insensitive docs, mainly GPs and physiatrists. Everything changed, when I went to consult a certain physiatrist, who asked me a few questions and examined me. He said laconic "well, you're quite bendy, aren't you". He didn't seem to impugn my pains.
After all, he gave me a notepad and wrote down "Ehlers-Danlos UK Support Group". I asked, if he thought I have EDS. He said he's supposing so. I got my epicirisis and read the dx: Q 79.6 Ehlers-Danlos 2/3.
