Things here at Team Cheetah HQ are pretty frazzled at the moment. We’re all tired and as such all have some degree of our Ehlers Danlos Syndrome flaring up with a variety of symptoms. It makes for an interesting family dynamic. I am in the worst pain I’ve had for some time having done that radical thing of bending over to pick up a pair of trousers and my L5 (that’s the 5th lumbar vertebra) going ‘ping’ leaving me with pain in my back, legs, hips and knees as well as the wrist, finger, jaw and neck pain that have been lurking for a while. I have always struggled with my Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and pain relief combo – getting the balance between pain levels and being able to function is one that I believe that many EDS patients find incredibly difficult.
