Hi @samigrace08 I also was diagnosed with Bicuspid aortic valve and have had arthritis in a lot of my joints and bulging discs. I did find out my hip is mildly deformed due to developmental deformity. I am now 34 and still have days where my knees are so bad I can’t bend them (one at a time) It is strange you mention Hypermobility because I do as well as hypereflexes. I have never been checked for Ehlers but seen Bicuspid aortic valve can be linked to connective tissue disorders? My main problem is muscles being weak from having to pick up the slack from joints. I now take it easy as much as possible but also take gabapenton and cyclobezaprine.

There does seem to be a link between Bicuspid Aortic Valve and connective tissue disorders according to the Marfan Foundation
