Bladder dysfunction is very common in the general population, but there may be an increased risk of various bladder disorders in EDS. This could be due to differences in the anatomy of the urinary tract and pelvis, to dysfunction of the involuntary part of the nervous system which also controls the bladder, a consequence of inflammation, or of bowel problems which can affect bladder function.
