Yeah, I've had this as long as I can remember. I believe it to be part of my Ehlers Danlos. It's not too rare and I definetely do not have the severe kind. Mine is more of a "rag doll" ability... which has always included popping my shoulders in and out.... usually while trying to get comfortable in bed.... they just "slip" in and out.
I'm getting ready to have 2 steroid shots in my neck due to a spur in the neck area of my spine (C3, C4 and C5). I did my best to have every friggin' LD, co-infection, etc., test run prior to the steroid shots. I feel like a Frankstein "experiment".... will she wake up? will she be paralyzed? will she do cartwheels? more to come..... stay tuned.
I'm ready to take the chance and if it works "correctly" it will have all been worth it.
