    That sounds tough - chronic pain is exhausting, I'm struggling to sleep and there is no point in taking too much in the way of painkillers as they don't work so well on people with jhs anyway!!

    My daughter has been diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos syndrome type 3 and jhs has now been recognised as being the same thing. I'm undiagnosed but I have all the pain as well as many joint problems. I've had sleep issues for over 10 years but just bought a new amazing mattress which I have to say has worked brilliantly. I avoid painkillers unless desperate. Exercising isn't my favourite thing to do I must admit. I do struggle with fatigue. Not a lot you can do I'm afraid. Good luck x

    My rheumatologist has been great, I too avoid painkillers but having a bit of help with sleep/stress. Joined a gym to do Pilates which is essential for bendy people and trying to get into self management zone but it's very hard - stress and fatigue so hard.
