In brief: The Brits

The best clinical medical literature on the subject seems to originate from England, where there are over two dozen clinics devoted to this disorder, which is a spectrum disorder from "benign" form to EDS and Marfans, both severe manifestations.
IMO, the familial nature of fibromyalgia is explained by the marked association of fibromyalgia and JHS, which has genetic underpinnings.

At Quora.com, on my Pain Syndrome board, I post several essays about Joint Hypermobility Syndrome.

In brief: Poorly understood dx

JHS is symptomatic hypermobility.
Many individuals who have hypermobility never have pain or require any treatment. When hypermobility is found associated with pain, or a few other criteria (see Brighton criteria) it is termed JHS. It is presumed to be caused by a defect in collagen but rarely have collagen related genes been implicated (TNXB gene).
