I was diagnosed in April with BJHS and autonomic dysreflexia along with shoulder impingement and tendonitis. I have worked with pain and symptoms for 28 yrs. Since Jan. I have been off work. My rheumatologist prescribed neurontin and keppra which make me feel drunk. I'm dealing with alot of pain and limited mobility in my arms, neck and hips. Im trying stretches and have been in my pool to try and improved my pain with no sucess. Sleeping is problem, an hour or two at the time. I'm only 47 and have high hopes to get better. I will get injections and feel better for a bit just to get very disappointed with more pain and reoccurring limited mobility. I feel like my rheumatologist has given up on me getting better. I am seeking a second opinion next month. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

It scares me because I have PoTs and it’s related to EDS and I’m scared I have vascular EDS. Only other...
