DD (12) is growing very rapidly and having all sorts of wierd problems with joints. Someone mentioned this but I can't find anything on Google, so perhaps it is not spelled right? Any ideas?

I just knew someone would know! Thanks for your quick response. Well, she doesn't have that but does have two shoulder blades which can be put out at will. Will get a doctor's appt to see if we should be doing anything.

Could she be hypermobile Sherbert?

I used to have lots of joint problems (mainly knees) as a teenager, but was really the opposite of hypermobile.

Yes definitely hypermobility. Interesting that it is usually inherited and now I think about it, I sit with my legs out at 90 degrees when I am on the floor. Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
