Moms go with their gut and you know when your child needs help .Certainly the Doc was wrong when he said that children dont get it ..and from what I read its easy to treat if is was that ...get another opinion ...good luck.

What Is Juvenile Arthritis?
In young people and children, under the age of 16, arthritis is classified differently. The course of the disease in children is usually different than in adults. Children experience different symptoms and generally have a more favorable prognosis.
Childhood arthritis is called juvenile arthritis. It can also be referred to as JRA, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, JIA, juvenile chronic arthritis, and Still's disease. Actually, these names are somewhat misnomers. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and adult onset rheumatoid arthritis differ in some characteristics but the names indicate strict similarity. Juvenile chronic arthritis is a misnomer since juvenile arthritis is not always chronic. Still's disease is a name which should be used for one very specific type of childhood arthritis.There are many links put in JRA into the search engine..and do see a specialist she can be helped ...good luck let us know how she does .
Children do get Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and other forms I will find a link , I think a second opinion maybe a good idea .
she is very active loves to run and play like any child would more active than some kids we dont have a trapoline but my aunt does she enjoyed it the other day the dr did not suggests anything th dr did not do any thing but measure her and said everything was lined up right and normal didnt tell me wat it could be or anything he said kids dont get arthritis so it was not that every now and then she is hot like a fever it is only 99,9 she feels very tired sometimes when she hurts
I am wondering if arch supports may help your daughter, is she an active child does she use a trampoline .Did the doctor suggest any testing to be certain nothing is going on ? Does she get any fevers or other symptoms aswell as the knee pain ?
