    scoliosis is definiety related to EDS often and yes the symptom overlap is amazing -
    gene testing for EDS - all types - is not far away I am told by my geneticist

    I read recently that MVPS - mitral valve prolapse syndrome - is no thought to be synonymous with EDS

    MVPs are very common In EDS
