The Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (“EDS”) are a group of inherited connective tissue disorders. EDS causes joint hypermobility; loose/unstable joints which are prone to frequent dislocations and/or subluxations; joint pain; hyperextensible joints; rupture of major blood vessel walls; and early onset of osteoarthritis.
We represent a 52 year old former bookkeeper from Northport with EDS. The pain from hypermobility is difficult to establish like any other subjective medical condition where the clinical findings are minimal. However, the clinical and surgical findings resulting from aortic and brain vessel ruptures are distinctly objective. Although the claimant’s joint pain was her primary symptom, I emphasized the ruptures equally as it was more clearly documented.
The claimant’s disability application was approved today. As I suspected, the decision approving benefits relied mostly on the residual problems from the ruptures.
