My sister who has EDS and certainly enough problems, called me on the weekend. She is experiencing symptoms similar to those I had when I had hyperthyroidism which eventually changed to hypothyroidism. my doc said I'd probably had an inflamation in the thyroid which can cause that. The did ultrasound on her which didn't show anything, but her doctor refuses to test her blood to see whether that will show anything. She is going to see a different doctor tomorrow.
I'm worried for her. She's 1 1/2 years younger than me and we're a lot closer now than we used to be, maybe because we both have loads of health problems and I don't want her hyperthyroidism to get as bad as mine did two years ago. At some point I was exercising for 10 hours a day because I just needed to move, dancing, running, walking back and forth in my room for hours. I got two stress fractures from that. I don't want her to go through all that and I'm really worried for her.The EDS is giving her enough trouble as it is, she doesn't need any more than that.

I am sorry to hear that your Sister is having such a tough time right now. Me and my sister (Antbuggey) are very close too and it is really hard to see them suffering. I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. I know you are worried but you still need to take care of yourself too. Keep us posted. Take care.
