I was diagnosed with hypermobile spectrum disorder in February. I have experienced symptoms of my hypermobile spectrum disorder since childhood. So I’ve made this video to share what is hypermobile spectrum disorder, to help other people who might experience symptoms and not know why.
HSD is a heritable disorder of connective tissues. It affects my connective tissues, and causes joint pain. It also causes fatigue as my muscles are working harder on everyday tasks, to stabilise my loose connective tissue.
As well as this there are other conditions which can be connected to HSD. I have slow bowel motility and other digestive issues. Other connected conditions are POTs and MCAS.
I hope you find this video useful. If you do please consider sharing it, so that this condition becomes more widely known.
