Q.

11 year old has problem with joints/bones

My 11 year old niece has bone problem. She complains about knees, shoulders ankle and waist pain. If she has knee pain, she cant even walk and her knees makes a sound, as if the knee joints are moving and loose. She is a tall girl though. What might be the problem?

Paediatrician

It is difficult to be sure about your niece's problem without being able to see her. She may have a condition called juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. She must be seen by a paediatrician as soon as possible.
