Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder, daughter, aged 13
Hi, my daughter was diagnosed with joint hypermobility syndrome at four days old. Since 2015, her symptoms have manifested significantly, the main one being at present chronic pain all over her body. She is seeing an NHS paediatrician and has had a number of tests. She is also seeing a osteopath who trained with Dr Alan Hakim, consultant in rheumatology. We are members of HMSA and I have recently ordered Claire Smith's book, Understanding Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder. I would hugely appreciate if anyone has any further advice in how they manage on a day to day basis.
