Is blue sclerae associated with benign joint hypermobility syndrome? Thank you.

No: Blue sclerae are typically associated with Osteogenesis imperfecta, not BJHS.

Opposite spectrum: A connective tissue disease or CTD is any disease that has the connective tissues of the body as a target of pathology.

Only 4 rheumatologist orthopedic have acquired hypermobility in ankles/knee joints from past- dance or gymnastics, can hypermobility spread 2 spine?

Only 4 rheumatologist orthopedic have acquired hypermobility in ankles/knee joints from past- dance or gymnastics, can hypermobility spread 2 spine?

No: Hyper mobility is a result of ligamentous laxity which is a result of ur genetic makeup. It therefore can potentially be present at any joint, even if the symptoms/sequelae do not present all at the same time. Therefore, the laxity is a condition inherent to each joint ; does not "spread" like an infection or cancer. ...Read more

Is patellofemoral syndrome typically associated with marfan's syndrome?

Is patellofemoral syndrome typically associated with marfan's syndrome?

PFS can happen: Marfan syndrome patients can get aches and pains in many joints because of the looser ligaments trying to hold the joints together at rest and under physical stress. Patellofemoral syndrome is common in normal, active school-aged children, so it is hard to tell whether or not it occurs more often in marfan syndrome kids. ...Read more

Have acquired hypermobile joints + flat feet/overpronation. I wear orthotics. Can hypermobility of ankles increase with age?

Have acquired hypermobile joints + flat feet/overpronation. I wear orthotics. Can hypermobility of ankles increase with age?

Yes and no: As we age, "hypermobility" tends to decrease. However, with aquired flatfeet, continued wear and tear (and increased weight) can often lead to more pain. There is no good evidence that orthotics will ever "correct" an arch. If they reduce pain, then continuing to wear them when upright would be encouraged. I would not expect that wearing these would worsen any "hypermobility" of the ankles though ...Read more
