East TN Ehlers-Danlos Support Group is a support group for people with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome living in and/or familiar with the East TN region. We welcome anyone with or looking for diagnoses in the “cluster,” including POTS and other forms of dysautonomia, Mast Cell Activation Disorder/Syndrome, Chiari, and so on. This group is intended as a support outlet, an exchange of resources and information, and a place to connect with new friends who understand what it’s like to live with these chronic illnesses.

We have an active Facebook group which can be found by clicking here.
