    hi, im 16 and for a year or so now i have been having problems with my joints, esspecially my shoulders and ankles. My shoulders seem to dislocate alot or partially dislocate when i make sudden movements. I have been to various doctors and physios and have been told i have chronic shoulder instability. I do alot of sport esspecially football and karate, i have been doing karate for 10 years but recently had to stop due to pains and aches which seem to become gradually worse. Over the past couple of weeks i have started to experience quite a deal of pain in my wrists and knees after exercise and my left ankle seems to give way quite a bit. The pain seems to be worse in the morning when i wake up, when i go to my bed and after exercise. I have a meeting with a orthopedic surgeon next week and im kinda scared. Does anybody have any ideas of what could be causing my joints to stiffen and cause me pain? thankyoou! <3
