To cut a long story short (as I'm sure you don't want to read it!)I have back pain which started just over 2 years ago and has become constant back pain rather then just an irritating niggle. After some blood tests and an MRI scan I was told I have Hyper Mobility Syndrome and fibromyalgia.
I had wondered if I had osteoarthritis in my back as I was told I had the early stages of osteoarthritis in my knees and ankle as well as having osteopenia (early stages of osteoperosis) but the MRI scan I had was all clear.
I was always under the impression being hyper mobile just meant you were more bendy, HMS I had just thought was just a posh way of saying "you are hypermobile" and shouldn't therefore be painful. Due to their being a link between being hypermobile and osteoarthritis (because joints get worn down at a greater rate then otherwise) combined with being someone who runs and also due to the already weakened bones I have I had just assumed osteoarthritis and it certainly does meet up with the symptoms but its almost definatly not this and apparently HMS.
Is there anyone else out there with HMS? Can you help me with my 2 year long understanding of my irritating/painful/at times debilitating back pain?
