Having just seen an amazing rheumatologist at the N & N hospital in Norwich I thought I should pass on what she said. I was hyper-mobile as a child. It seemed pretty cool at the time, being able to sit in weird positions, bending my limbs in all sorts of odd ways. The result though is that I now have nearly 50 years of tendon damage. Factor in fibro on top and I can now look forward to a life time of constant pain and the inability to do a lot of things. She's going to do as much as she can to give me some relief but the damage is done. So, if you know anyone who has hyper-mobile children, please pass on this warning to discourage 'showing off' this ability. It's not worth it. Thank you. Xx
