If your fingers can do this, does it automatically mean you have Elhers Danlos Syndrome, or could you just be double jointed?

    It doesn't mean you automatically have it, although you should be checked.

    I have a cousin who has it. Once, she dislocated her shoulder, rather easily,

    and it had to be popped back into place by a doctor. When my son was born,

    the doctor suspected that my son might have it, because he was so 'soft', but

    it was determined he didn't have a full fledged case.

    I think that’s being double jointed. Elhers is loose skin.

    I've been able to do that all my life and no one ever said I had anything wrong. And I'm 72. So I wouldn't worry about it. Lol
