Hypermobility Syndrome causes joints to stretch past their normal length. Hypermobility syndrome can occur genetically. However, the syndrome can also occur due to medical negligence. Hypermobility Syndrome can be caused by misaligned joints during a surgical or non-surgical procedure, medications that have been improperly prescribed, or other inherited diseases such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome or Marfan syndrome. If you have Hypermobility Syndrome and are a victim of medical negligence or your syndrome has worsened due to improper treatment, you may be able to seek financial compensation for your claims.

Hypermobility Syndrome can affect the body in many different ways. For example, one of the highlighted symptoms of hypermobility syndrome is an abnormal range of motion in joint areas. A victim of Hypermobility Syndrome will be able to hyperextend or hyperflex their foot in many directions. An associated symptom of Hypermobility Syndrome would be pain upon flexing or extending a joint. An extreme and rare symptom of Hypermobility Syndrome would be scoliosis or a “curvature of the spine”. Muscle pains are also common with Hypermobility Syndrome due to the fact that the muscles have to work harder to stretch along the joints when hyperflexed or hyperextended. Pain that is terrible during the day but leaves throughout the night is a very distinct pattern among victims of Hypermobility Syndrome. Sufferers are also said to often feel tendencies of fatigue and unexplained bruising.
- Digestive and neurological problems can also occur with the syndrome.
- Heart burn is a common digestive symptom that occurs with hypermobility syndrome.
- Bloating and painful cramps can be caused
- Nausea and vomiting are two symptoms of the syndrome.
- A rare symptom with hypermobility would be irritable bowl syndrome.
- Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome can occur as a symptom of Hypermobility Syndrome. Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is a neurological condition that speeds up the heart rate when a person stands up after sitting for a long time in one position.
- Other known symptoms are associated are flat feet, thin and/or stretchy skin, anxiety, varicose veins and drooping eyelids.
Hypermobility Syndrome can be diagnosed with many different combinations of medical diagnostic methods. One method for diagnosing hypermobility is to obtain an x-ray examination. During the examination process, your joints will be visually assessed for their collagen levels. If the levels are too low, you may have Hypermobility Syndrome. Diagnostic labs can also perform tests to determine if you have low collagen levels. Hypermobility Syndrome can also be diagnosed by testing the range of your joints. A doctor will perform a series of tests that will assess your range of motion. Based upon the results of the test, the doctor can diagnose whether or not you have Hypermobility Syndrome.
