    Surely heavily skewed by being a self selected sample. People with bendy joints who are otherwise healthy are unlikely to join hypermobility disorder social media groups.

    Epidemiological studies looking at frequency of overlap of symptoms and syndromes really need to be done from proper representative sampling from the whole population.
