My legs are weird. There are all sorts of things going on in my body, so it's really hard to understand the effect these things have on my legs. They can do certain things, but not others, which is a bit of an enigma which stumps most medics. I wanted to share an analogy I've thought of that explains how I feel about what I feel.
First, though, I wanted to look a bit at why I and others with EDS have these problems - why is it that I have a bit of control over my legs, but not as much as I'd like? Why is it that I can feel pain from within, but not from without? Why can't I feel things that touch my legs, and why can't I feel where they are in space? I have to admit, I haven't found all the answers. I think it'll take a fair bit more research, not only from me but from the scientists out there!
