Hypermobility Syndrome

7 Sep

Interestingly, while at the doc today, the nurse practitioner was examining me to see if I had fibromyalgia symptoms. 

She pointed out that I have hypermobility in my joints.  Oddly enough, a physical therapist told me that last year when I hurt my upper back/ shoulder blade.  At the time, the PT said it goes along with some syndromes and that I need to remember that I have that. 

Well, I forgot.

Until today!  Just a minute ago, I looked it up and who would guess….it correlates with none other than Lupus.

1 Other conditions exhibiting hypermobile joints are rheumatoid arthritis, osteogenesis imperfecta, systemic lupus erythematosus, poliomyelitis, myotonia congenita, and some neurological conditions.

Maybe I am not just making this all up.
