What are symptoms of hypermobility joint syndrome?

ANSWER

Children or young adults with hypermobility sometimes have joint pain. It can be in any joint, but it's more common in the legs, such as the calf or thigh muscles. It most often involves large joints such as the knees or elbows.

Some people also have mild swelling in the affected joints, especially during the late afternoon, at night, or after exercise or activity. That swelling may come and go within hours.
