Here is the situation,

My 14 yo daughter is active in athletics (volleyball and basketball primarily) she has had no significant sports injuries, just the usual occasional turned ankle or knee. She is healthy, above average height/weight ratio, good student, etc.

Almost exactly one month ago I was summoned to VB practice because she had collapsed and couldn't get up. When I got there she was flat on her back, crying and had extreme pain in her joints (elbows, wrists, knees, ankles and hips). Her stomach muscles were also tender to the touch. I took her to the ER and by the time we had been there for about an hour the pains had gone away. They did a full blood work up - everyting came back okay. Followed up the following day with her pediatrician. He ordered and ECG, EEG, MRI of her head and and echo cardiogram .. everything came back okay.

Volleyball ended and now basketball has started. She went to practice tonight, started feeling sick and excused herself to the bathroom. She made it to the hallway and couldn't go any further. When I got there she was basically in the same condition as when she collapsed during volleyball practice (on her side, elbows bent with her wrists crossed near he chest, knees bent and trying not to move any of her joints because they hurt so much). This time her neck also hurt and she kept coughing. As I was helping her up I heard and could feel a couple of clicks in her wrists.

Anybody have any ideas??
