HMS/Ehlers Danlos Syndrome - Hypermobility
Hello,

I was diagnosed with Hypermobility Syndrome back in the 90s, my joints stablized somewhat til 1 yr ago and now the pains r back.

I have since seen an Orthapaedic specialist who didnt know the condition HMS, he practically laughed in my face and showed me the door.

How can i get some recognition of this condition and get some help for it? I am currently taking Glucosamine and Chrondotin with cod liver oil, i also wear insoles to stablize my ankles as this causes problems with the flexibility, have fallen over a few times with this.

Any suggestions??

Hi Vicky

You need to be able to stabilise whatever range you have so I would suggest getting into the gym and focussing on strength training.
