you should ask your doctor for testing for Ehlers-Danlos syndrome

which is a group of disorders that affect the connective tissues that support the skin, bones, blood vessels, and many other organs and tissues.

Defects in connective tissues can cause the signs and symptoms of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which can cause mildly loose joints and problems with tendons and require many surgeries.
