Rachel - have you spoken to a doctor about it? If you are getting pain from your hypermobility it's likely you have the syndrome bit too. Ask to be reffered to a rheumatologist. Even if it's only minor it's best to see someone early to learn physio exercises, what you should and shouldn't be doing etc to prevent it getting worse. You have to go in knowing your stuff though, as many doctors haven't even heard of the syndrome

Roma and Squizita - do your research before leaving uninformed comments. I know this post is super-old, but I just hate to see such ignorance. Being double-jointed and having hypermobility are the same thing yes - it is mostly having a cool ability to do wierd things with your joints. However, 5% of double-jointed people have hypermobility-syndrome (or ehlers danlos hypermobility type) which causes a lot of pain and can be pretty awful for some people. Next time, google before making such ignorant comments.
