Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Sorry to hear about your health condition.
The treatment and management of vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) aims to relieve signs and symptoms and prevent serious complications. For example, people with vascular EDS have tissue fragility that puts them at high risk for rupturing of arteries, muscles and internal organs. It is therefore important to seek immediate medical attention for any sudden, unexplained pain because emergency surgery may be needed. Periodic screening may be recommended to diagnose aneurysms or other problems that may not cause obvious symptoms. The risk of injury should be minimized by avoiding contact sports, heavy lifting, and weight training. Elective surgery is also discouraged.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
