It’s Our Time: STINA Records Message of Hope for Ehlers-Danlos Awareness

Patients born with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome often fight many for years for proper diagnosis, recognition, and treatment.

Most patients wait more than a decade to obtain diagnosis.

Their fight can be a difficult, tortuous road. Because of the multisystemic nature of many forms of Ehlers-Danlos, too many patients struggle for over a decade to obtain comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for their overall condition. As a result, many are not diagnosed until much later in life when damage to joints can be irreversible.

We asked the Ehlers-Danlos community how many years it took to be diagnosed from the onset of their symptoms. Their answers are shocking. This needs needs to change.

‪#‎ItsOurTime‬ for educating the medical world, to ensure symptoms will be recognized sooner and diagnosis is no longer not such a battle to receive.

The Ehlers-Danlos Society is dedicated to nothing less than a total transformation of our understanding of Ehlers-Danlos and the mechanisms by which it causes so much pain.
