This is an illness that can make you able to do things that look double jointed as well as other things, yet once the illness comes out of its dormant like stage, there is pain accompanying it. I have been on major medication for almost 10 yrs do to this illness.
It is only hereditary so its not that well known, however watching both Lisa and Elvis i really think they may have it. There are tests the Dr can give you and it would answer for sure that he really did have the pain and he really was needing help. The average age people with this illness die is 48.
If Lisa is proven to be afflicted by E. D. S. there are things that with Drs. help they can do to slow the process of pain down and fight off death longer. But it would also show all those skeptics that Elvis wasn't a fake who just wanted the quick fix.
Some symptoms are: massive sweating, joint pain, rashes, dislocations, trouble sleeping, constipation, and weight gains. Now tell me where have we seen some of those....what's that you say in Elvis.... why yes that is true, but oh it couldn't be ... he was just a junkie that wanted to live the high life. I CANT STAND TO HEAR PEOPLE TALK ABOUT HIM THAT WAY.
Even if he didn't have this illness I don't see him as a liar that would make up stuff and say he was in pain just to say it. He loved his family and he wouldn't have made up stuff that would make it so that he wouldn't be able to be with his babygirl through her life. I really would like to see Lisa be able to be with her kids as long as possible.
If she has this and it cuts her life short, just because she didn't know that all she had to do was get tested and then work with the Drs. on a health plan it would be an injustice so Lisa please for us and your family get tested so we can keep you around for a while.
