My 10 year old is having intermittent leg and thigh pain, he is lethargic, angry against his older brother. But, so far he has no fever, normal labs, x-ray and mri are normal, too. Also, when he was 6 years old he had been diagnosed as having systemic JRA - 3 weeks at Duke Hospital and lots of steroids later, it took him a year to recover and now out of the blue he has unexplained leg, thigh and hip pain. This has been going on for several months. We are waiting for a Lyme test to come back. Also, someone brought to our attention a theory by Dr. Sherry in Philly (chop) where he believes the pain signal was distorted as a result of a traumatic event - such as arthritis.
