Hypermobility
« on: December 26, 2019, 10:59:26 AM »
Hypermobility means that some or all of a person's joints have an unusually large range of movement. People with hypermobility are particularly supple and able to move their limbs into positions others find impossible.

Even if this is true for one specific position (despite being stiff for all other positions). It could be something small as bending a finger in an unusual way or having a large range of movement. You might not be aware of this until someone tells you this.

I have the opposite of hyper-mobility. I used to play a lot of sports and do martial arts and stretching is a huge part of warm ups. My flexibility never would increase and I believe POIS has something to do with that.
POIS sufferer for over 3 decades. Has progressively gotten worse over the years and I became completely disabled around 2011. My case of POIS is very severe.

Yes POIS prevents me from getting flexible. Stretching before exercises would make me prone to injuries. I had a few events were POIS made me stiff to the point where I had the idea I was pulling a muscle when using the affected muscle groups. Things I'm thinking about what POIS does:

1) Changing blood supply to muscles.
2) Affecting muscle tone (this one is quite clear to me, I think this one gives me problems in maintaining posture during POIS)
3) Releasing enzymes which degrades connective tissue (MMPs)
4) Inflammation (3 and 4 could be the same thing)

Interesting. I used to wear quad compression sleeves for my Orthostatic intolerance and sometimes I would orgasm with them on and I could literally feel the rush of blood pass the the sleeves after orgasm. Afterward I would have a pain around my right ankle muscle not bone and after orgasm again it would get more painful from the rush of blood. I have also taken my blood pressure and heart rate right before orgasm and after orgasm and my blood pressure and heart rate are much higher before and then they sling slot downward immediately after orgasm.
