Can joint hypermobility syndrome cause referred pain? If so, what is the best way to help with the pain?
Hypermobility: Hypermobility can be assoc. with joint pain esp. if you've dislocated a joint or sustained an injury to the joint.

Probably not.: Isolated joint hypermobility is not dangerous. When part of a syndrome like marfan's syndrome, there may be associated problems that are more serious. Marfan syndrome has a range of expressions, from mild to severe. The most serious complications are defects of the heart valves and aorta. It may also affect the lungs, the eyes, the dural sac surrounding the spinal cord, and the skeleton. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sort of: There is some evidence that those with hypermobilty are at increased risk of sprains and strains, although there also exists some evidence to the contrary.

Collagen disorder: Jhs is a constellation of symptoms that are very similar to marfans syndrome and erhlers danlos syndrome. It is due to an abnormality of collagen which causes tissues to stretch more than normally. Of course this increases your risk of joint problems, but can also result in heart problems and blood vessel problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Overstretching tendo: With increased ability for joints to move more than the normal range, the tendons (muscle to bone connectors) and ligaments (bone to bone connecters) get over stretched causing micro tears and inflammation from the excessive range of motion. This is the connection between hyper mobility and inflamed tendons. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have joint hypermobility and wanted to know how it links to anxiety?What are the symptoms of anxiety?
There is connection: It is not well understood why there appears both to be more anxiety problems in people with joint hypermobility syndromes (particularly Ehlers-Danlos syndromes), but it appears to be more than just being anxious about a condition that can cause disability and pain. There is a website with information and further literature and resources - http://www.edhs.info/about1-cs05. Good luck!!! ...Read more
No: Not exactly sure what you're asking, but I am inclined to say no. The mere act of driving would not worsen the condition and should not typically exacerbate symptoms.

Although I would expect that in anyone, not just those with hypermobility. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
