I started prolotherapy treatments in 2011. I have lost count as to how many I’ve had. I have learned along the way that prolotherapy is controversial in the world of EDS. The first EDS doctor I saw after I was diagnosed actually did not recommend it, although he admitted he did not know much about it. At that time, I was having a horrible time keeping my back and head supported without a neck or back brace. That doctor actually diagnosed me with cranial instability and sent me on my way with a referral to a spine surgeon, telling me he suspected the surgeon would determine that I needed a skull to C-3 fusion.
Topic: What’s something your doctor taught you?
Well, as I am sure it is true for many of you, I have many doctors. Each one has taught me so much along the way as I have learned to manage both EDS and POTS. Finding such a great team of doctors did not happen overnight. It took a lot of travel, a lot of help, and a lot of patience.
I just realized that I never updated about my echo results. After a week and a half of waiting, the report was finally located.
Recently I’ve had a few people ask questions about the doctors and therapists I currently see to keep my POTS and EDS manageable. Whenever I type a list like this, I thank my lucky stars
