I have my fair share of mechanical problems with my knee, and over the years have seen dozens of PTs, OSs and GPs who have all commented that I'm 'probably hypermobile too'. The OS I saw last year (who I'm no longer under the care of) performed various tests but nothing came of this as he was somewhat 'distracted' by my bone and ligament issues and possible surgery.
I've just moved to a new area and have an appointment with my new GP in a few weeks' time - how do I raise this with her? I'm keen to find out if I actually do have a recognised hypermobility condition as I know too well that leaving things unattended to can be your worst enemy! Also, even though I'm not planning kids anytime in the next few years, it is a definitely consideration for me in the next 5-10 years and I'm aware hypermobile pregnant ladies have a tough time! Also concerned about passing anything onto my children (when I was born myself I dislocated my hip due to laxness)
Any help, ideas, input and advice much welcomed!
