Freaking out a bit ( just kidding a lot ) #ChronicIllnessEDS #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #hypermobileehlers-DanlosSyndrome(hEDS) #Anxiety #Brace

I'm freaking out and trying to not let my anxiety and depression suck me in. I sprained my ankle end of Aug not to bad but got stuck in a brace.Finally got an MRI and I not only have a sprained ATF Ligament but also tenosynovitis of my Posterial tibial tendon and peroneal tendon. That sucks but the worse news is tedinosis of my peroneal tendon so I've pretty much frayed and shredded the tendon and the only fix is surgery. I'm freaking out, the dragon has had a rough day with my stress

What’s this?

Got my wrist brace last night and wore it for the first time today, but Skittles isn’t too sure about it. She likes that it gives good scratches and makes noise when she nibbles on the strap, but doesn’t like that it is big and she can’t see my hand.

I highly approve of the brace. My wrist feels better already, but I have some major adjusting to do since I’m losing my thumb.

My knee brace hurts, can anyone help me find out why? #knee #Brace #pcl #Injury #ligament

Hi! I was wondering if any of you wearing a knee brace could help me? My brace doesn’t fit well since a little while and I’m wondering what the problem could be? As you can see on the pic, there is a part that dig into my skin and hurts me. Is my brace too small? I’ve gained a bit of weight in the last months. I’ve tried to adjust the straps but it doesn’t seem to help. What can I do? What is the problem? Thanks a lot!

Erbs Palsy Hope #ErbsPalsy #BrachialPlexusInjuries

Tomorrow I’m going to have an evaluation for this myomo brace for my Erbs Palsy (brachial plexus injury). I’m so excited and nervous. When it comes to my arm and shoulder I have never received good news besides “it hasn’t gotten worse” and this time it looks promising. I’m just not sure if I can get someone to watch my dad so I can go. I seriously never qualify for any help with my shoulder and it really gets to me and I finally do! I need to stop getting excited though. I might not be approved. I know I haven’t shared much about my Erbs Palsy on here yet, but I promise I will. Please ask me any and all questions! #question #ErbsPalsy #BrachialPlexusInjuries #Myopro #Myomo #Brace #OrthopedicBraces #Shoulder #Disability #Advocacy #Hope
