In brief: Bone abnormalities
Low bone density from eds can lead to problems healing fractures and have joint pain.
Spine deformities such as kyphosis or scoliosis can also occur. Irritiable bowel syndrome and GI disturbances can also be problemmatic. Finally, nerve compression syndromes such as carpal tunnel can occur along with known skin conditions, and blood disorders. Check with your physician to discuss fully.

Also, complications depend on the types of symptoms. For example, overly flexible joints can result in joint dislocations. Fragile skin may develop scarring. People with vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome are at risk of fatal ruptures of large blood vessels. Some organs, such as the uterus and intestines, may also be at risk of rupture.
