I'm not sure what this is, any ideas?

Well I've previously been to the doctors about this issue I've been having since I was little. Basically my wrists, jaw, knees/ankles and toes click whenever I flex them. Thus causing me to be more flexible and able to bend my fingers back farther than most people can.
I was told what it was but I unfortunately cannot remember the term that was used - all I know is, is that it's due to the build up of collagen in my joints. I cannot remember it's actual term, there is no treatment for it but I would like to be able to find out more but I cannot do so until I know what it is.
Also, because of this would it be possible that it's what causes my foot, knee and hip on my right hand side to get "stuck". Like for instance with my knee and hip it's like I have to force my leg to move in a certain way to literally make it pop into place again so it's okay. When it's my foot the tendon in the bottom of my foot forces my big toe to go to a 90 degree angle upwards and stay there even when I force it back into place, it'll do it again and the tendon sort of curves downwards so you can see it in the bottom of my foot.
Or are these two seperate problems?
Thanks for any help.

Re: I'm not sure what this is, any ideas?

It sounds like it could be hypermobility syndrome. It is usually genetic and causes laxity in the ligaments.

I can't speak to the second part of your post, but I can share that as I've gotten older I've developed some issues with individual joints over time.

Have you been to see an orthopedic specialist yet?
