Karen DeCoursey was diagnosed with VEDS following her brother, Mike’s, diagnosis in 2017. For Karen, the diagnosis offered answers for many unanswered medical questions in her life, as well as the answer for her father’s death at the age of 49. In this episode, Karen talks about what she went through before and after her diagnosis, including feeling like she was a hypochondriac for many years of her life.
