    Hi Lissy,

    Sorry to hear your daughter is unwell. You really need to get her to a rheumatologist to get her checked out properly. Arthritis is so different in each individual I wouldn't want to express an opinion on whether she has it. Some of the things you mention sound like our experience, but others don't at all.

    Please get her to an expert and let us know how you get on.

    Good luck,
