What is this? Doctor didn't know what it was but said it was 'unusual' and could be a virus. Temperature of 39 (103) Yesterday boy 16 had really bad pain in joints, particularly neck and knee and felt unwell and headachy in bed. Today, all pain concentrated in shoulder. Agonising to extent crying and can't move even slight in bed. Light headed. No redness around joint. (He didn't have any sort of accident) no swollen glands, no rash. Seems pretty poorly. (this isn't flu type ache). Worried as was told by doctor to just wait and see what it might turn in to.... Worried mum.
