Potsdam Fibromyalgia and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (F-EDS) Support Group is open to people with hypermobile EDS, fibromyalgia, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), which often co-exist and may be un- or misdiagnosed. Patients with all of these conditions struggle with many of the same problems: pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance, exercise intolerance, GI problems, anxiety, etc. The group strives to help people develop the tools to best manage their conditions. The group is supported by a collaboration between Clarkson University Physical Therapy Department and Canton-Potsdam Hospital.
