Sound familiar? I've saw a rhuematologist years ago who said I had rheumatism. Then another who said i had reflex sympathetic dystrophy. Then recently the podiatrist said I needed new insoles for my very high arches causing heel pain, bunions and ankle pain. Then a surgeon operated on my bunion and said i have osteoarthritis. Then a rhuematologist said I had sesamoiditis (inflammation of thumb bones). Then a surgeon said I have synovitis in my wrists. SO I went back to the GP and said why have I got all these different things? He said maybe its caused by hypermobility syndrome! So hello, I've come to join you.
