Hedda – EDS


“ I was sick from the age of 9, battling with pain, dislocations and subluxations on a daily basis. I had pain in my wrists, fingers, hips, shoulders, and feet. I wore braces and splinters and used crutches or a wheelchair depending on my energy levels.

I had tried everything the Norwegian healthcare system had to offer me over the years, without any success, and eventually had to drop out of school and stop taking part in social activities.

I started feeling very hopeless regarding my future. Then my very stubborn mom, who had been searching high and low for a way to get me healthier told me about a man in Newcastle called The Fibro Guy. I thought, why not, let’s do it, I can’t lose anything by trying this as well. And let me tell you, it has been the best decision I have ever made!

The week I arrived in Newcastle,  my dad and I tried to do some sightseeing and my hips subluxated 9 times,  resulting in my dad having to carry my bag because it was too heavy for my dislocating shoulders. I was so exhausted after a few hours and I fell asleep at 8’o clock in the evening. I didn’t know if I could make it to the car to get to the appointment with Adam, but luckily I did. After just a few sessions my energy levels rose through the ceiling, I stopped dislocating, my pains were gone and my mindset has been completely changed.

I have now gained a social life, I’ve lived by myself in a foreign country, travelled, gone on hikes, even gone clubbing. It’s been hard and at times exhausting work, but it has definitely been more than worth the pain: no pain no pain. My parents are now getting back a completely new Hedda, with so much energy, joy and hope for her future.”
