The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    Hi Alex,
    justy
    i have not the reference to hand but I am fairly sure frequent mouth ulcers is a symptom of EDS
    WIll post it when i find it again - a few otheres are looking into that too.

    ALso you mentioned in another post large hands and feet -well long limbs and tall stature and difficulty gaining weight you likely know can indicate Marfan's habitus - which my grandfather had. It is also strongly linked gebetically to EDS.

    Not sure if you have these too - Ted Danson's build comes to mind as typical picture of it - but also many models and supermodels have it as that is the current fashion look.

    best
    Ally

    @Kati no I haven't. Can be a long path to a diagnosis. There is such a thing as "incomplete Behcet's" plus it is still the subject of research especially Neurobehcet's.

    What seems more important is not the name but that the patient gets listened to & gets to try available treatments that apply to their presenting symptoms.

    Very interesting thread. I am getting BD tests on Tuesday. I hope I don't have this illness.
