Okay this may be quite detailed, but I want to try and be as all-inclusive as possible.
I am a 19 year old female. I'm about 5'2" and 145 lbs. I live on the East Coast USA.

Possible Symptoms

I have a TMJ popping thing... my jaw creaks, grinds, pops, and sometimes aches.

I've never felt... real. lol. It's hard to explain...

My joints have ached on and off since I was about 8 years old. Usually in the cold. Now just my left ankle is partly swollen and the side is very tender and there is a small bump on the bone that is not there on the other side. Warm makes the swelling go away, coldness makes it worse.

Every morning ALL of my leg joints pop numerous times. Knees, ankles, hips... everything.

I have a rectocele. Hasn't been diagnosed.. but I know it's there.

Sometimes have red/black blood in stool.

I have had 2 consecutive miscarriages. No healthy births. The second pregnancy I know more about and the embryo's hCG was not rising properly after the first few weeks.

I have multiple keloids on my shoulders.

I have heart palpitations, usually before my period.

I have really bad period cramps.

And I'm double jointed... mostly in my legs.

I've been diagnosed with OCD... That's about it...
I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. :)
My theory is something with connective tissues... From what I've read.. or lupus lol.
