Hello everyone. I was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) March 30, 2015. I'm really not sure which is causing the most problems. I have soooo much trouble sleeping, but I feel that it is due to the pain I am in from the EDS and not from Restless Leg Syndrome (which is what my doctor thinks). I have been taking Requip for the RLS for about a month now, and I have noticed no difference at all. I am so exhausted and in so much pain throughout the day that exercise seems impossible. On top of all of this, I have Hashimoto's Autoimmune disease and had my thyroid removed April 2013.
Does anyone else have either of these diagnoses? Have you found anything that helps you to feel "normal" again? I have already been instructed by my doctor to wear braces on both wrists, both knees, and both ankles to prevent further injury to my extremely hypermobile joints.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!!!
