    Ahhhhh! I'm getting excited/nervous for you! Hopefully the operation will help you loads. :) 

    and if the tribunal happens to be on that date, at least you have a valid excuse for not attending in person. ;)

    I take Naproxen and also Lansoprazole which is a gastro resistant medication for stoamch issues caused by certain medications. Please note that this isn't medical advice, i'm just advising the name of the medication i take. You should of course speak to your GP.

    I hope your pain eases soon.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Not a medical pro - and only saying what worked for me over the counter - Cyclizine anti-histamine

    Now got Metroclopramide on prescription for the sickness with acid reflux and side effects from other pills

    Hi @Ollyoyster, sorry you're feeling so rubbish. It's horrible being in constant pain. Seems like it would be worth getting in touch with your doctors or local pharmacy to help you with the right medications.

    I think I once read somewhere that hypermobility can be affected by our estrogen/hormones fluctuating, but I'm definitely not qualified to say that for certain! 

    I hope you get some relief soon, take it easy.

    Hypermobility is indeed often worse around the time of the month speaking from both personal experience (I have the hypermobile type of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome), & reading about it from a medical perspective. As a result of having hypermobile joints, I also developed generalised OA. Personally, it was the increase in suluxations that I found the worst.
