Pictures are always fun so I'll start with those. A while ago I took some pics of me doing some EDS "tricks" so that I could ask a group of people with EDS if they thought I may have a HCTD, they thought I looked to be a person who could & told me to ask my doc. Both my docs agreed. I looked at a lot of pictures on the web & kept saying, yeah, but everybody can do that. So I'll share with you a few of my pics, perhaps if you are wondering if you have EDS you may see these & realize it's worth asking your doc about.
My leg turned in. Both legs do this, but this is just the one turned. I can go further than this, but if I do I causes mild pain, when it's just this far it doesn't hurt.
Then we have my crap ankles. The left leg is fine, no discomfort standing like that. My ankles roll like that, & more, while I'm walking & cause me to fall & that part sucks, & hurts.
Then the here's the easiest "trick" I've got, but oddly enough this one seems to gross people out a lot. I really don't understand why this one bothers people so much. This is called Swan Neck, I always called it Witch Fingers, lol.
So now on to my odds & ends. I went to the Parents Orientation for pre-school last night. I really think this school is a great one for GirlChild. She's going to have so much fun. I did mention to the one teacher that she may be a bit more prone to falling than the other kids as her ankles are kinda crappy already. Speaking of she fell & busted her lip today. Her tooth punctured the lip, but thankfully it didn't go all the way through & stopped bleeding before too long.
I am still feeling scared about my upcoming appt. Like what if he laughs me out of the office for wasting his time?
Oh & incase it wasn't obvious my headache is pretty much gone.
