In brief: ? Ehlers-Danlos Syn.

The most common pain associated with eds comes from the fact that the connective tissue supporting the joints becomes lax and allows chronic joint dislocations.
These people frequently notice they are "double-jointed" but later experience the chronic dislocations. A more serious kind involves blood vessels where they can spontaneously rupture. Eds can also be a limited to the skin.

In brief: All.

Excessive laxitity of the joints over stresses the hyperlax tendons, ligaments, and poorly articulating joints.
Eds patients get accelerated arthritis (osteo).
