When medical students are training they are told "if you hear the sound of hoofs, think horses not zebra's" In other words look at the more obvious first as it is much more likely to be the case than something rare. People with EDS are known as Zebras due to the fact it is a fairly rare condition and therefore Dr's are not taught about EDS, which is why it often gets overlooked as something more common like M.E or Fibromyalgia. The zebra has now been adopted across the world and the black and white stripes are used in the logo for EDS UK and images are used to represent the condition. 
Throughout my posts I will be referring to the "Zebra".
