Our favourite day of the year
It's Rare Disease Day! Shout out to the rare among our followers!
Many conditions fall under our hypermobility syndromes umbrella: Some such as JHS* aren't rare at all, and others such as hEDS and HSD may or may not be, we're simply not sure yet (they're only a few years old!).
Other types of EDS are more rare, and further rare hypermobility conditions include Marfan Syndrome, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, PXE and Lloys-Dietz to name a few. We'd also like to mention SWAN (Syndrome Without A name) and ‘Orphan’ patients who don’t know what they have but know their hypermobility hurts them!
We’re here for all of you, and would be great to see our rarer bendy people show their colours today.
