My ligaments are too long all over...?
I've been told by several doctors that my ligaments are abnormally long and stretchy, allowing me to contort beyond what most people can stretch. I've never been told if there is a name for this or really anything at all to do about it. My hips and other bones slip out of joint with great ease, causing an excruciating amount of pain all over (which, paired with the already-sensitive nerves of fibromyalgia, can be nearly unbearable). I've been told that physical therapy can help, but without knowing what it is, I'm hesitant to do anything. Can anyone shed some light on this?

First, I don't believe that your tendons are too long. When they are short they keep a pressure on a joint so it can be pulled out of joint, but saying one will just fall out of place doesn't make sense. It's also the tight muscles that would cause the fibromyalgia to happen, it's blocking the waste materials from leaving your body so it's creating a lactic acid to burn you on the inside. (When wastes back up and combine with a lack of oxygen they create lactic acid, which is burning your body. It's like when one hasn't run for a while and does and the next day the hurt. But their muscles aren't tight so the jam on the wastes does clear where yours isn't.) I know the dr.'s aren't on this but they aren't even onto the tight muscles or how to free them up so they are just slow right now. The muscles can be freed up to help you out but it's too involved doing the whole body to try to do anything like that on the net.
fms is highly overdiagnosed and without addressing your musculoskeletall issue--you should not have been diagnosed with FMS THERE ARE MEDICAL CONDITIONS THAT CAUSE JOINTS TO EASILY DISLOCATE look up ehlor danlos syndrome..... have you tried a geneticist?
