Not too sure where to post this as we dont have a diagnosis yet...
14 Year old daughter who has been dancing for many years, approx 3 nights per week, has never had any knee issues or injuries.
4-5 months ago she started have sore knees, we thought it was just growing pains.
Knee's became so painful she had to stop dancing and walking was becoming difficult, doc susspected Osgood Schlatter syndrome.
1 month later my daughter cant go to school and is confined to a wheelchair at home, just too painful to even stand up.
Doc does not know, referred us to a pediatric speacialist who ordered x-ray, MRI's on both knees, bloods.
X-ray = normal
MRIx2 = normal
Blood tests incl Lupus = normal
She has full movement but just increadibly painful, she descibes it as bone on bone grinding.
Knees have NO swelling though are hot to touch.
She has NO fever
The knees DO crack when she tries to move, this cracking sends a shooting pain down her calf and she is then in pain for several hours afterwards and crippled. We have been to various hospital emergency depts when this happens, they dont know the cause and can only offer drugs Endone which does not even help with the pain...
Pediatrician has referred us to a child Rheumatologist, waiting for appointment.
She has been off school for almost 3 months now and in a wheelchair for 2 months.
Any ideas appreciated...
