I'm an 18 year old female. I have scoliosis (2 curves, a 30 and a 17 degree curve). My joints are all very flexible all throughout my body. All my joints hyperextent quite a bit (i can place most of my fingers on the back of my hand with little discomfort, my knees and elbows both hyperextend quite a bit). Numerous doctors have said that I have loose joints. I also have collapsed arches. None of these things cause any major problems.

Anyways, once upon a time, I was at a routine check up for my scoliosis. They checked usual things like my balance, reflexes, flexibility and whatnot. There were 2 doctors there (one was a student type or something). They both looked into my eyes and said that I have a little bit of something that i misheard. But I heard the word 'blue.' Anyway, I recently realized that he was referring to blue sclarae. It looked like he was expecting me to have blue sclarae. So, i was under the impression that he felt that my, i guess symptoms, were indicative of something but i guess he didnt want to say anything.

I did a multiple symptom checker with blue sclarae and scoliosis.

One thing that quite closely fit the descpition of was osteogenesis imperfecta, with one exception : I have never broken a single bone, nor ever had a fracture. Apart form that I have everything. I also found it on another site and it said hearing loss. I'm pretty sure I've got that too.

Was he 'refering' to this or something else? Or am I being a hypochondriac or something?

  • The internet is a great place for sick people to read up on symptoms, but it can also cause alot of worry. Sweetheart, there is probably nobody here that can answer your question. You really need to pick up the phone as ask the doctor what he ment. This way you can either stop worrying about a problem you don't have or you can prepare yourself for a problem you have. Pick up the phone or send that doctor an e-mail. This is your body, and you only have one... Good luck hun... Kiera
