In brief: Usually - one type
There are a variety of types as you note and most of the time this is the benign hypermobility type.
It is genetic and you may have relatives also wiht it. Each type can have a variety of manifesations and so people with the same type can have different symptoms. Exercise is an improtant stabilizer and you need to be doing this.

You could one of several types, but different people with the same type can have different symtpoms.
Exercise is your key to help control the symptoms. Please exercise.
