I read an article about hyperflexibility a while ago which is what people call double jointed. In the article they mentioned the correlation between it and fibro??? I have been multiply double jointed as long as I can remember and was wondering if anyone else has noticed this.
I can put my hands flat on a surface and turn my inside elbows straight up and almost the other way. When standing if I don't pay attention my knees will bend bowed backwards. The lotus position is absolutely no problem. I was able to put both ankles behind my neck until the last few years, now it is only one. I can bend my thumb straight back on top of my wrist, not forward on my inside. There is more but I wanted to give a few examples.
Not important but I was just curious
