Started not too long ago in my left elbow. Then left wrist and then to left knee. Today right elbow and wrist. Left ankel briefely hurt a bit. It is kind of a sharp pain and it comes n goes between them. But knee hurts so much it gets hard to walk. I'm only sixteen. Five two and oneten pounds. I've had cts like symptoms for awhile in my left hand but not recently. They aren't swollen to my knowledge.

I dunno what it could be. No fever. No tick bites. I have had exema for my life. I'm on Zoloft for anxiety and focolin I think for add. Uhmm I do horseback(8yrs), guitar playing, lots of art, and on the computer alot but that doesn't affect my knee. Back gets knotted bad often and is stiff Sometimes it seems like my fingers should be kinda swollen but they are not. Also lots of bruises haha. think that's all haha any ideas?

  • Is the pain worst in the morning and goes away with movement?The association of arthritis in a few joints with lower back involvement and a history of eczema (which could be psoriasis) could very well likely be Psoriatic Arthritis. Mention this to your GP and seek a Rheumatology consult. Unfortunately there is no cure for this disease, but it can usually be controlled by 1/weekly dose of methotrexate +/- daily low dose oral prednisolone. Again discuss this with your rheumatologist on the best available treatments in your area.
