The story of Nanette
Nanette is a 27 year old positive girl. As a young girl, Nanette has always been a bit of a loser. She had X-legs, a lot of “growing pains”. It was only during her education at the University that it became clear why so much went wrong with her. The growing pains turned out to be (sub) luxations of the joints and the X-legs were caused by a wrong hip position. For years we have seen many doctors. It was the rehabilitation doctor who expressed her doubts and decided to send Nanette to the rheumatologist with a suspected diagnosis. After another referral to clinical genetics, the diagnosis was really established. It was clear: Nanette has Ehlers Dahnlos Syndrome (EDS).
