Hyper mobility syndrome

It's such a pain... Literally! I'm 18 and I can't even stand long when I go out with my friends! My shoulder sub laxes constantly and my thumb dislocates. My hip pops and so does my ankle! My knees are also affected and flare up burning and go red, I'm so tired and sore constantly it's just awful and people don't realise how painful it can be! I'm glad for this as I can read other people's posts and know I'm not alone in my suffering x

  • Hang in there hun, you are not alone. Hopefully you won't have the gastro side of things as that has really affected my life. It is frustrating how little can be done for us though... Just keep talking and know that you have support from others like you. Check out the EDS sites because really they should phase out hypermobility label altogether! Take care x

  • Thank

  • Honestly, the only thing that works for my joints is strength training. If you're in the UK your GP can refer you to the Physical Activity Referral Service which sets you up with suitable classes and trainers. It's very hard at first and hurts a lot before it starts feeling better.
