Hello everyone, I know I've posted a bit about my woes but have had such good advice I thought I would let you all know I finally saw a consultant which I had to book privately and he diagnosed 3 things:
Palendromic Rheumatism
Hypermobity Syndrome
Now I'm trying to get me head around it all, I know I have osteoarthritis in my knees and left thumb also cervical Spondylosis. I'm confused about the Hypermobity Syndrome and how this can be a problem, after all flexible joints are a good thing are they not?

    Lots of people have hypermobile joints and, for sportsmen and women, they can be a real asset. Unless they're too hypermobile. If joints are very hypermobile they can, eventually, cause OA.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    hypermobility syndrome, is common with younger people & normaly goes away in thier twenties , if you look at EDS type3 , it will list alot of the things you mention & some think hypermobility syndrome & EDS type 3 is the same condition

    I know nothing about Palendromic Rheumatism , as for Fibromyalgia my son has had this since 1995 , you will need to take the advice of your consultants , only thing I would recommend is seeing a physio & building yourself up , it will help alot with Fybro & Hyper joints
