At 10 I developed joint and back pain. I was diagnosed with school phobia but I loved my school. Nearly 30 years later I was diagnosed with Hypermobility and told it wouldn't affect me. How wrong:- it has affected nearly every system in my body. Like others I know, I was given several different diagnoses one for each system. It has been easier since being taken seriously to know that I have one diagnosis and not many. Systems affected include musculoskeletal, gut, heart, blood vessels, urinogenital tract and eyes. I'm not complaining just asking to be listened to- there is no cure but it would help to share experiences with others.
