Can symptom checkers diagnose my Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome? Is artificial intelligence smart enough to decipher my symptoms? In this video, I take a variety of symptom checker quizzes, from Mayo Clinic to WebMD to see if they can conclude what took my doctors almost a decade.

WHAT’S EHLERS-DANLOS SYNDROME?
EDS is a genetic connective tissue disorder caused by a mutation in a gene that codes for collagen, an enzyme involved in collagen synthesis, or another extracellular matrix protein. EDS results in connective tissue that is abnormally weak, fragile, and stretchy. Connective tissue is found in all parts of the body, including your organs, ligaments, and joints. As a result, people with EDS can be affected in all of these areas, as well as more. The most common symptoms and co-morbidities include pain, dysautonomia, dislocations, GI tract dysmotility, severe joint instability, and many more. The disorder is somewhat rare, estimated to affect around 1 in every 5,000 people. However, it’s speculated by many to not be as rare as we once believed.
