I was diagnosed a while back with hypermobility syndrome when I went to see a new rheumatologist for my pain. I hadn't heard of it before then, but he explained it somewhat, saying it's basically that you're double-jointed (or at least partially--I can't fully touch my thumb to my wrist, but I can get pretty close) and you have thin skin, so you get bruises, stretch marks, etc, very easily. Is there more to this than these two things? I mean, can hypermobility syndrome actually cause pain in itself, or cause any other sorts of problems? From what he said, it sounds like it's basically just bruising a lot that's bothersome. I can't really find a whole lot on the condition. I've heard a lot of people with FM talk about hypermobility recently, so I'm guessing it might be one of those comorbid disorders that sometimes accompanies FM? Anyways, anyone have any information on this condition? I'd really appreciate it :].
