In brief: No

There's no such thing as a double joint.
You can be extremely flexible, and folks with ehlers danlos often are incredibly flexible. This comes from laxity in the ligaments and connective tissues surrounding the joints. The joints themselves, where the bones meet, have the same number of connections as anyone else.
