I read an article the yesterday about IBS being quite common in patients with hypermobility syndrome. Hypermobile people have a problem with the collagen in their bodies. Collagen is involved with the muscles, tendons, ligaments and anything that moves in the body. It makes everything extra elastic so dislocations and puled muscles/tendons are common. I hadn't even thought about it affecting my insides. I am now sure that this is what is causing my IBS. I'm interested to see how many other IBS sufferers also suffer with HMS......anyone? I was diagnosed with HMS when I was 15 when I tore a tendon in my knee. I quite often dislocate my hips which is very painful.
Thanks for reading, xx
