Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seek.
You may have a variant of ehlers danlos syndrom
Yes, I don't think you have ehlers danlos syndrome, but something milder
hypermobility syndrome? (gotta love wikipedia)
Yes, hypermobility syndrome
so, what do i do??
I would recommend starting with a test called a complete metabolic profile, to check your blood levels of calcium and copper
Are you still there?
How? Does my Dr. have to order that?
Yes, your doctor needs to order it
When I make the appointment, do I tell her what I think I might have?
You can tell her your symptoms, and also tell her what you suspect you may have
What types of treatments are there for this?
I've had shoulder surgery...I'm having foot surgery....I'm getting to not be a fan of surgery...
I understand, if there are abnormal levels of copper or calcium that are causing it, then supplements may help
So, make an appointment with her, then, basically, and go from there?
Yes, that would be the best option
Lovely. Well.... I basically just wanted to see if my suspicions were on the right path.
So thank you.
You're quite welcome
