Hello everyone, I'm new on here. I am 63 years old and was diagnosed with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome at age 60. This was actually a great relief that I had something I could put a name to, having suffered from various seemingly unconnected symptoms for many years. As well as the aches and pains I also have chronic fatigue, which kicks in when I have overdone things and forces me to rest for a couple of days at least. I also have digestive problems, sleep problems and arrhythmia and sometimes it really gets me down. People can't understand how one day I can be very active and the next I'm walking with a stick or can barely move because I'm so tired. At least my husband understands and is very supportive, so I'm lucky to have him.
