Joint Hypermobility, Allergic Rhinitis, Anxiety and poor immunity
21 January 2013
Through my practice in the area of child and adolescent psychiatry, I have come across a few children and families who have this combination of hypermobility, Allergic Rhinitis and other allergies and Anxiety. I have often wondered if this combination is merely a chance finding or whether there is a logical explanation for this combined occurrence.
To consistently find patients who share these similar characteristic has fascinated me immensely and this review by Ross and Grahame looks to be a great starting point for research in this area.
