I noticed that someone on the boards mentioned they had Ehlers-Danlos, and I have wondered if I have this syndrome. I have laxity in my ankles, which caused a fracture last August. I am going through physical therapy now to improve the strength in both ankles, but if the pt doesn't work, the doctor is considering ligament surgery. Does anyone else have laxity in any of their joints? Also, does anyone know if joint laxity is part of fibro? If anyone has been diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos, how did you get a doctor to diagnose you? I don't want to make more of the situation that I should, but the orthopedic surgeon told my husband and I that I had laxity in my ankles that was probably genetically based, and I don't really understand if this laxity is related to fibro or Ehlers-Danlos or neither one.
