Hi Scotty I the only one on here so far I think who has it n I posted all the info n symptoms on the other disabilities section, plus the disabilities i suffer because of it and its very late diagnosis. hope the info is of use to you, I have full joint hyper mobility syndrome, affecting, wrists, ankles, knees, shoulders fingers and toes. most have been injured or dislocated some more often than others.
Anything else u need just ask.
I think I'm the first sufferer on this site, when I mentioned it in the rant room I was asked to put an explanation and description on the disabilities pages.
Ryan I also do not think you have Hyper Mobility Snydrome (HMS),
As you've scored 0 (Zero) & never had any other Strains, Sprains, through light tasks or injuries.
My Ex-Employers Marks and Spencer Plc's Medico-Legal Expert - Mr. James Campbell Semple - Consultant Orthopeadic & Trauma Hand & Upper-Limb Surgeon said I had Hyper Mobility Snydrome (HMS) & other diseases & He stated they was nothing wrong with my left hand/wrist at all, in 2006.
Despite 2 NHS Consultant Orthopeadic & Trauma Hand & Upper-Limb Surgeon's confirming I was suffering From Mid Carpal Instability in my left hand/wrist only & it was an Complex & Serious Wrist Disability that would cause Pain, Discomfort, & Disability, As well as getting worse over time, This was also confirmed by my own Private Medico-Legal Expert Consultant Orthopeadic & Trauma Hand & Upper-Limb Surgeon,
& It was also confirmed I was suffering From Mid Carpal Instability in my left hand/wrist only & it was an Complex & Serious Wrist Disability, By 2 Physiotherapists one from The NHS & 1 from My Ex-Employers Marks and Spencer Plc, Along with Other NHS Doctors, Nurses, & Consultants, & over the years even Plain X-rays have now shown clear Instability Patterns,
I was suffering From Mid Carpal Instability in my left hand/wrist only & it was an Complex & Serious Wrist Disability, By 4 Independent Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit Doctors, & Unanimous found a Disabled Person Under The Uk Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) of 1995, In My Tribunal Hearing in 2005, The Chairman was an D.D.A. Barrister (I believe) & the other 2 members no idea what area they worked in.<br><br>Post edited by: Scott_1984, at: 2009/01/10 09:31
hi scot n ryan don't mean to jump in on ur chat however if u ckeck the updated beighton checks now its actually can you now or could u ever bend like that, the joints do start to tighten up with age, u may still have it but ur joints may have tightened up, it depends on history as well. just thought should mention it.
