My 13 yr old son is still undergoing testing for a diagnosis. The drs think he may possibly have a Rheumatological disease (Lupus, Stills, etc). He may be having a "flare up" presently. He came down with a virus and 2 days later his knees began to hurt. They have been hurting so severely now for a week he hasn't been able to walk on them. Can Lupus or any other Rheum. disease cause this?

  • I'm not sure exactly how painful these things are, as i don't have them, so maybe if you asked an online support website, where you can talk to others with that condition. I also just thought of gout, though i don't think it is all that likely at his age. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gout#Acute_attacks
