Hello following a spontaneous pnuemothorax my GP has agreed to refer me for genetic testing for connective tissue disorders. I've never been diagnosed with EDS, I have multiple other diagnosis such as fibromyalgia which I think add up to hEDS but when I asked my GP for help previously he said "same tree, different branch, the treatment is the same so whats the point?" Very helpful πŸ™„ So can anyone tell me anything about genetic testing on NHS? What does it entail? Waiting list times? How long do results take? My son is also struggling with multiple problems and being fobbed off by GP so if anything comes up for me I'm assuming/ hoping he'll get more help too. Thanks πŸ™‚
