hi my name is pip short for paula.

told near 9 years ago i had joint hypermobility..........then i got a cold which i could not get rid of.........weeks later my wonderful gp went think this is something more.

lots of trips to hospital. and the result was fibromyalgia, joint hyermobility, IBS and all that goes with it.................there me thinking i was just going mad..........

i do have a realy good gp, who understands that when i am in pain i cannt get to him, so he comes to me..........

i am in my 40's married with three children and i think finding this site has stop the maddness today...................

i was told that i have passed the joint hypermobility on to my youngest child this is hard to deal with but he doesnt blame me but he is still only 9

Hi Pip

I didnt know that joint hypermobility was connected to fm :o

I was diagnosed with joint hypermobility about 17 years ago while seeing a physio about my tietze syndrome. I know know that tietze syndrome is connected to fm and i suffer with it often.

When will the health pro's start to put 2 and 2 together? As it was obviously back then that my fm started. People would be able to get earlier diagnoses.
