Hypermobility?

9921977?1391687014
I would like some help in knowing what is going on with me please.

Well, a few years ago I was diagnosed by an osteopath as having hypermobile joints. He wrote in a letter to my doctor that I have hypermobile facets in my spine and excessive torsion in my pelvis/iliopsoas region. My doctor did not act on this letter but a Beighton score was done. Although I did not score enough, the physio I saw did say I could bend my knees backwards when standing (in his words "sort of").

Well, what's escalated my concerns is that my endocrinologist who I see for my hypothyroidism/Hashimoto's is not referring me to a rheumatologist on a consultant-to-consultant basis as she does not do that. She refuses to see I have a connective tissue/rheumatological problem and I feel that she did not examine me thoroughly for such problems.

I had have a corticosteroid injection into my hip and also had an iliopsoas tendon release for snapping hip syndrome, however this has had limited success and the laxity, snapping and hypermobility still remain.

Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated. Please look at my pics I've included.

Thanks

Jo
