Hey guys, I’m new on this site, so nice to meet everyone who might comment on this post. From what I’ve read so far, it seems like a nice community.
I have just been to rheumatology for the first time and they suggest that I have hypermobility and they’re open to the thought of me having fibromyalgia but they don’t want to diagnose that too early. I am being sent to physio therapy and whatever the foot doctors are called since I have flat feet.
All I’ve heard from hypermobility is that it is genetic however no one in my family is hypermobile or even flexible in any shape or form. So not sure if it’s always genetic?
I also wondered what tips you might have to reduce the pains in.. well literally every single joint and muscle, since everything hurts.
I’m only 20 years old however I’ve had this pain since I was around 12? Or at least that’s when I noticed it, I’ve been flexible all my life. However, now I’m finding it difficult to go to university and I already have anxiety so I feel awkward going to university anyway and the pain I feel makes me not want to go in more!
Oh, I’m from the UK btw.
