My son is 2 year old and his very sick.It's start on august 2010 he woke up with severe leg pain about 4 weeks before he had diarrhea and was very bad.We make blood analysis,all possible infection analysis ( tuberculosis,bucelliosis,yersinia,chlamidia,ureoplasmosis) also Mediterranean fever disease,rheumatoid factors, C-reactive protein ,all streptococcal test's like antigens or streptolisin test.All were clear.Nothing! Also we make hip sonography and X-ray there were inflammation in right coxofemoral joint. His got chronic tonsillitis ( 6 times per year) and we make throat swab and got streptococcus beta type.we threat him with amoxacillin 10 days and second swab shows only fungus. So right now he woke up again with severe pain,again we make hip sonography nothing and doctor told us about unclassified,unknown etiology arthritis.I don't know what to do.Please help me ! I 'm hopeless right now.
