Firstly, may I just clarify, that the spectrum of hypermobility conditions and their issues/symptoms are so wide and so varied that there is no such description as ‘typical’, but to give you a general idea and understanding, here are some that many experience…
Not everyone experiences problems/pains with their hypermobility and continue to enjoy the benefits of extra flexibility for engaging in sports/arts.
However, many people do suffer with a variety of symptoms due to their hypermobility and each persons experience will be unique to another person with the same condition.
For quick reading, I have placed below here, a list of typical symptoms experienced as a result of hypermobility problems/pains. This list is not exhaustive and you may not be experiencing them all, but provides a quick reference to help gain a good understanding of hypermobility conditions for yourself or someone you know. For further detail, see the useful links section.
