I'm new here but I am wondering whether I should go to see a Doctor with this? I am 21 and I'm fairly sure this stuff is not normal.
All my life my joints have been really loose. As in they would click and crack all the time, my jaw sometimes got stuck out of place if I yawned too widely, my hip would get stuck in a funny position if I sat down too quickly and I also could do flexible things.
For example my favourite party trick is putting my hand flat on the floor and twisting it 360 degrees so my elbow joint is on backwards. But my joints ache a lot of the time, I get tired easily and I fall asleep everywhere and often end up with bruises that I have no idea where they came from.
I was just googling causes for this because if it can't be fixed I would like to know is there a reason or a cause or something. I found Joint Hyper-mobility syndrome or Hyper mobility EDS, so I was wondering is it one of these two syndromes.
I also have been diagnosed with Irritable Bowl Syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Acid Reflux (which sets of my asthma) which also came up along with things to look out for, for both of them on the NHS forums and other website. I also have like head rushes and feel really dizzy and like my heart is hammering sometimes when I stand up or sit up.
My question is did any of you guys have these kind of problems? What was the outcome? Did your doctor listen to you?
I really hope I can get to the bottom of this at some point. If only to be able to answer why are you complaining about aching joints your still young. I am going to Malawi for three months in a week so I can't do much at the moment but should I tell someone when I get back?
Thank you very much for reading!
