I have been left confused this week. My 10 year old son has been diagnosed as joint hypermobility. His rheumy says no syndrome. However he has the following problems, painful knees with a maltracking right kneecap,bendy elbows,fingers and toes hypermobile,flat feet with severe pronation particularly the right,he can put his ear on his shoulder without raising his shoulder,gets severe pain in his hands and fingers when writing,has gut pain?ibs symptoms,deteriorating eyesight,according to his specialist pain amplification,migraine,hayfever,bruises easily,very clumsy,always tired but not able to sleep due to pain. So which is he hm or hms? He has other allergies and was lactose intolerant as a young child. At the moment he is very low and lacks confidence. He is being admitted to hospital for extensive physio as his quads have deteriorated. Can anyone from this tell which he is? I have a lot of similar symptoms but not diagnosed. I am 44 and have osteoarthritis in one knee,3 parts of my spine,neck and one wrist and thumb base. I also have umbilical hernia. I am now permanently tired but not sure if it is meds,my own fatigue or lack of sleep due to my pain and his lack of sleep.
Mum to son with hms,pain amplification,migraine,plantar fascitis,ibs.lactose intolerant,hayfever and numerous allergies. I have hms,arthritis,migraine,p.o.t.s,allergies,and others too numerous to mention. Acused of being mentally ill hence.....madmum.
