I'm not sure if these symptoms are interlinked or not, but I'm writing down everything I can think of.
I'm a 15 y/o female, average height and weight.
Gp refferred me to 2 different rheumatologists in the past 3 years about pain in my joints, mostly my knees. No diagnosis.
Occasional pain in my joints, especially knees and hips. Of varying severity, does not follow any pattern, except is sometimes worse after excercise. Pain occurs most in knees, then hips and ankles, and occasionally elbows and wrists. Joints often swollen.
Raynaud's phenomenom
Difficulty reading computer screens and certain colours i.e. black text on white paper.
Tingling and numbness in joints, often accompanied by a burning sensation.
Cannot walk in straight line
Talk very slowly, speech is sometimes jumbled, like I can't get the correct words out
Uncoordinated - cannot catch etc.
Unconscious eye movements
Periods of fatigue
Periods of not being able to sleep
Periods of short attention span and confusion


I think that's all. Like I said, I just wrote down every symptom I have, in hope I might get some sort of clue as to what may be the matter.

Most of the symptoms are not at all severe, but do affect me to a noticable level.
