I'm 16 years old and I have pains that come and go in my hands, knees, and feet. I've had this condition all my life. My parents took me to several doctors when I was little and no one knew what it was. There's no stiffness or swelling and the pain doesn't affect any movement. It's not really intense pain, but if I don't take any painkiller it's enough to keep me from being able to continue whatever I was doing. I get these pains every day, randomly it seems. I'm having to take ibuprofen every day, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day because of it. The pain happens most often at night. I don't really think this is any kind of arthritis because I don't have any other arthritic symptoms. It's so hard to find any information on this with only one symptom! Please, if anyone has any ideas, let me know what you think.
