"I suffered my first dislocation in June 2013 when I was 13. We were practicing long jump at school and while I was landing I heard pop in my knee. I yelled in agony and looked down to see my leg bent at a fanciful angle.
"An ambulance took me to Southampton General Hospital, where a doctor manipulated the joint back into place under local anesthesia.
" The medics accepted that I had just landed awkwardly, but five months later it happened again while I was skiing.
"Four months after that, in March 2014, I was getting on a bus when my other knee bounced and days later my shoulder popped out while watching TV
" Every time I was pressed into a hospital where they maneuvered the joint back into place.
"I was terrified and my parents demanded doctors for an explanation, but they thought it was a temporary growing pain. However, things only got worse.
" Gradually every joint in my body began to twist. I would cough and drop a rib, or stand up, and my hip becomes snapped.
"Every time the joint was dislocated, it was agony and causing damage to the ligaments, which made it more likely to recur. I realized that the faster the joint returned, the more better, so I learned to do it myself without pain relief.
"By July 2015 I was struggling to keep my food down and had terrible stomach cramps.
" Feeling out of control of my body, I did some research and I came across Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS), a group of disorders than can cause h dislocations and digestive problems. In November 2016, tests finally confirmed this.
