My child has been having continuous joint pains in all the major joints for about 10 years. Initially the doctors thought it was growing pain because only the knees were affected. Now the pain has spread to all her major joints. She losing the use of her hands because she finds it difficult to write in school. We have done every kind of blood tests, X-rays, MRI, food allergy test and everything has come negative. The pain gets worse during her period and during the cold months especially in the mornings. There are times when she cannot use her hands or legs. She sometimes just falls down when the joints give way. She has been given naprosen to help relief the pain but it does very little for her. To make matters worse now she is experiencing some anxiety (I am getting her counseling for this). Lyme and lupus have been ruled out (she did not do the BLOT test) only the Elisa. Initially the doctors thought it was arthritis but that too is now ruled out. She is my only child and it pains my heart to see her losing her mobility day by day. Any help that I can get will be greatly appreciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
