Thanks to everyone who signed. I will be forwarding this petition to both NHS Fife & Grampian soon. And I hope to let you all know the outcome.
HMS also known as Joint Hypermobility Syndrome is a condition where you can over extend your joints and easily dislocate joints, it is also known as Double Jointed. HMS is very uncommon and was only discovered in the last 40-50 years. Many areas are up on this condition and other conditions associated with HMS and offer alot of treatment/information and services, NHS Fife & Grampian however don't know much about it or provide the information and treatment available. Many of us are still waiting to see a Physiotherapist and Rhumatologist and having to deal with the pain on our own.
Our nearest centre is Glasgow and we have to be referred to it, but many of our doctors won't.
We, HMS Sufferers in Fife/Grampian, are calling on NHS Fife & NHS Grampian to bring more information, appointments and a better service to hospitals/clinic's/GP Surgeries to help Joint Hypermobility Syndrome sufferers.
