3). FATIGUE Joint hypermobility undoubtedly makes extra physical demands on the muscles of affected patients. Muscular fatigue after exercise is, therefore, not surprisingly, frequently reported in JHS. More severe and enduring chronic fatigue occurs when JHS is complicated by chronic pain. It is, of course, the cardinal symptom of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) so that there may be some difficulty in distinguishing between CFS and JHS. The question is further complicated by the finding that JHM occurs more frequently among children with CFS than in controls (Barron et al 2002).
