Nonya has a good point here. I was in that position myself, I didn't realise I was hypermobile - I thought I was 'normal'.
Another point is that some of those manoeuvres on the Beighton score need someone else to do it to you, some can't do them themselves. (Not a very clear explanation, sorry
!) So you might score higher than you think. Please don't allow a non-medical person try them on you, though: they could do you an injury.
Sorry to hear you can't see a doctor about this at the moment. I hope you get your medical care soon,
