    The ability to touch your nose with your tongue - known as Gorlin's sign in medical parlance - can be an indicator of connective tissue disease such as EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Dyndrome).

    The symptom overlap with ME/cfs is estimated at about 90 percent.

    A first degree raltive is a parent sibling or child

    sometimes this ability is due to a missing frenulum - the tissue under the tongue in the centre rear
