doublejointedyogini Still playing #shesgotlegs catch up, so posting Day 15: Krounchasana - #HeronPose

Double Jointed Yogini #YogaTips:
* When bending the knee into half-heroes pose, I have to literally PULL my calf muscle so that it gets out of the way of my hamstring so my hips are fully settled onto the mat. Be sure the ankle isn't torquing to the side and the foot stays as close to your hip as you can. * Use your core to sit taller and deepen the mobility of your pelvis/hip. * Use your BREATH to deepen

chronically_sarah After months of slipping joints, my dr finally shed some light on my problem. He diagnosed me with joint hypermobility syndrome. I am to begin physical therapy for a core strengthening regimen. He also suggested getting kinesiology tape. I know a lot of my spoonies deal with some of these issues. Does anyone have any advice?? #jointhypermobilitysyndrome #hypermobile #spoonie 6h
  •   cheysindisguise I have EDS too and my only advice regarding the joint aspect of it is to get muscle. Muscle is key. The more muscle loss there is, the more unstable joints/tendons/ligaments get. 6h
  •   joanelizabethf I am some where on the hyper mobile spectrum and love @kttape 6h
  •   choosing_hope I am glad you got a helpful diagnosis. That makes a difference. Good luck with the taping. 5h
  •   alyssaotr I'm an occupational therapist we use kinesio tape often for all kinds of issues especially joint stabilization. It works very well. I'd have your PT apply it because there is a specific protocol for it to work correctly 3h
  •   kellysart I use the tape often. It really helps my joints be more stable. 2h
  •   shannnnnon_j Don't do party tricks with your joints! I learned that the hard way 2h
  •   kla_yeahyouknow Just be careful taking it off, some people have a harder time on the skin, an it can peel the skin away. 2h

sam_and_leo Well, another day, another diagnosis, another pill. I kinda saw this one coming, though. I don't particularly want to post about it, but feel free to DM (although please don't be offended if I don't respond right away; I'm pretty busy tonight). Mr. Leo is keeping me company and making me smile with his shenanigans :D I hope you guys are having a good evening/afternoon/morning! I can't wait to see about it on my feed! #servicedog #greatdane #pitbull #merle #blueeyes #goodboy #medicalert #love #cute #dog #puppy #eds #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hypermobile #hypermobility #gastroparesis #gastro #dysautonomia #chronicpain #chronicillness #fibro #fabromyalgia #endo #endometriosis #spoonie #fighter 1d

sam_and_leo Good morning! Mr. Leo is on high alert today; after the awesome night we had, I'm noe aware of the consequences. My fingers and hands are acting up, so he's getting great practice at honing "take it" and "bring it" commands! I'm so thankful for my boy every day :) #servicedog #greatdane #pitbull #merle #blueeyes #goodboy #medicalert #love #cute #dog #puppy #eds #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hypermobile #hypermobility #gastroparesis #gastro #dysautonomia #chronicpain #chronicillness #fibro #fabromyalgia #endo #endometriosis #spoonie #fighter 2d

sam_and_leo It's sleepy time for us. Mr. Bug alerted twice to my drop in BP during the concert, despite the crazy environment! As for me: I'm ready for some sleep and spoonie recharging! I hope you all have a wonderful day/afternoon/night (depending on the timezone)! G'night! #servicedog #greatdane #pitbull #merle #blueeyes #goodboy #medicalert #love #cute #dog #puppy #eds #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hypermobile #hypermobility #gastroparesis #gastro #dysautonomia #chronicpain #chronicillness #fibro #fabromyalgia #endo #endometriosis #spoonie #fighter 3d

thindetermination My hand spasms are getting so much worse. It's making holding my phone problematic. They and my legs have been so bad today. I don't know why :( I want it to stop. Debating more meds to try and relax my stupid body enough... Ugh.

I'm not okay. I'm not okay. I'm not okay.

Why am I fighting these illnesses? They'll overcome me anyway. No matter what anyone says, they are progressive and I am visibly deteriorating. Meds have their limits. I'm fucked.

doublejointedyogini After resting a wonky knee for a few days (stupid joints), in playing catch up on #ShesGotLegs! Day 11: Reclining Straddle

Double Jointed Yogini #Yogatips
* Since my #hips are where I (and most of us) hold our tension, my #flexibility isn't exactly where I'd hope. Judging by the difference between my left and right leg (can you tell my left hip is tighter!?) this is something I should hold daily...
* Poses like this require less muscle strength, more muscle release. The less you try, the deeper you get. Nice to let gravity do the work ;) Personally that is HARD. I'm so used to engaging everything to prevent hyper extension that I have ingrained fear of letting my joints fully release.

sam_and_leo Too sleepy for life! Lol. Having a really good morning so far! Basically just a lot of waiting at this point. I have an interview with the disability office in October. Kinda nervous, but I'm also sure everything will work out! #servicedog #greatdane #pitbull #merle #blueeyes #goodboy #medicalert #love #cute #dog #puppy #eds #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hypermobile #hypermobility #gastroparesis #gastro #dysautonomia #chronicpain #chronicillness #fibro #fabromyalgia #endo #endometriosis #spoonie #fighter 3d

sam_and_leo Ok, here's a "throw the ball" face. Lol! Anyway, health update! I see a new primary care next Tuesday! This guy knows a great deal about EDS and dysautonomia, which will be a refreshing change. My last PCP literally told me my fainting was "probably caused by [my] anxiety". While some people (including me) have passed out from anxiety, I knee that wasn't why I was fainting! I'm still counting down the days to September 29 when I meet my genetic counselor! Things are looking up! :) #servicedog #greatdane #pitbull #merle #blueeyes #goodboy #medicalert #love #cute #dog #puppy #eds #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hypermobile #hypermobility #gastroparesis #gastro #dysautonomia #chronicpain #chronicillness #fibro #fabromyalgia #endo #endometriosis #spoonie #fighter 4d
