I have Ehlers -Danlos syndrome and Fibromyagia and after being diagnosed with having TIA 's for 6 yrs I have just had a new diagnosis of Hemiplegic migraine. I have had three over the last 5 weeks and my right side has remained paralysed, the headaches come & go. Anyone else have this prolonged after effect?
Also I need to find a specialist in London or Southampton - as I will be flying over from the Channel islands for a consultation. Please can anyone help... Life was bad enough before to be honest, and this is the last straw...

Gentle hugs to all the others out there who are suffering because of EDS.

I have not yet been officially diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos type 3 because i have only just started looking for answers for my pain this year; but I score 6 out of 9 on the Beighton test, plus I can do the backwards namaste and I can lock up and bend all the tips of my fingers. I'm in constant pain, hands, hips, feet, shoulders, neck and back, and I always feel like I'm about to fall apart. the simplest move and things pop out of position and I'm in agony. I Also have a family history of aneurysms. I have hemiplegic migraines as well. i was 9 years old the first time I had one. I also have hydradenittis Suppurativa (boil like infections) under my arms. I hate feeling sick all the time, and having my life stolen from me. My kids all have varying degrees of hypermobility and migraine headaches, often with vomiting. I want to get them help early and maybe prevent some of what I've gone through. However, I live in British Columbia, Canada, and we in general seem to be about 20 years behind the scenes when it comes to medical stuff, and there is not a lot of awareness here, so the process to get help is very slow. If any of you folks out there are praying types I would welcome your prayers, and send mine your way. God Bless.

Guernsey girl and francherry my 19-year-old son has hypermobility EDS and hemiplegic migraines, the first one happened yesterday with complete paralysis on the right side. I am not finding any sites that have good suggestions for treatment options or what the odds are that the temporary paralysis can become permanent over time. I have read at least 15 accounts of EDSrs having permanent issues over time.

Would you both be willing to contact me?
Thanks!
