Chiropractors/chronic rib pain from 3 yr. old fracture


Kellie wrote at 2013-03-03 01:41:10
I have a disease called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and also have Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Many people with Ehlers-Danlos also suffer from Gastroparesis. Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome causes dislocations and subluxations, which are made worse by pregnancy. It causes chronic pain, often needing controlled by medications like fentanyl patches. This disease is way under-diagnosed and many people go years without a diagnosis. Google it and see what you think. I think it's definitely worth checking into- I've never been pregnant but your post reminded me so much of myself. I'm not an expert or a doctor, but a suffer of this disease. It took me almost 15 years to get diagnosed, and in the mean time I was told I was a hypochondriac, etc.  I'd love to be in touch with you but it says not to post email addresses, but you can contact me through my website which will go to my e-mail.

Best of luck to you!
