    Question
    Hello, I was wondering if TMS could help me. I have Ehler danlos type 3 though hyper mobility so I am not sire if it could help. I do have cubital and carpel tunnel in both my arms. I also have chronic anxiety and other psychological problems so I dont know even if it is psychological for that if it would help. Should I just go ahead and give it a try?

    Answer
    Thamks for the question. Ehler Danlos is a connective tissue disorder. I don't know too much about it, but I believe it is a diagnosis made based on clinical signs, and that short of genetic criteria that some of the more rare forms have, there is no definitive way to diagnosis it.

    Given your history of anxiety and other paychological issues, it is possible that you're dealing with TMS and that some of the symptoms common in ehler danlos are just cooncidental.

    I'd consult with a TMS physician, someone who can help determine whether the symptoms you're presenting with are significant or incidental.
