I was watching a TV programme on BBC3 called 'Bizarre ER'. It was about some of the more unusual/interesting cases coming into an UK A&E. One of the cases involved a finger dislocation - something us folks are very used to!! Anyway, the programme was actually good and mentioned reasons for dislocations and then subluxations taking place - e.g. excessive force, a fall etc etc and then it mentioned 'Hypermobility Syndrome' that people were flexible all over. Unfortunately it didn't go on to say how much pain etc we endure - but at least it did get a factual mention.

If you're squeamish I'd give it a miss, it does get pretty gory!
Bizarre ER (Series 3 - Episode 4) is repeated on BBC3 on:
Thursday 27 May at 02:00
Friday 28 May at 04:10
Saturday 29 May at 01:40
Sunday 30 May at 23:15
It's also available on BBC iPlayer
(available until Saturday 5 June, I think).

That finger was dislocated at a pretty impressive angle!
Another series of Bizarre ER had a girl with HMS and a girl with EDS in one episode!
Twice as much ain't twice as good,
And it can't sustain like one half could,
It's wanting more that's going to send me to my knees.
