  • No, thank goodness I havent. I know you said she had x-rays, but did she have an MRI?? If not, she needs one-it will tell them more.

  • my son had it happen when he was young. The dr told me it was "just" arthritis. After a while it just went away and never came back so not really sure what it really was.

  • well the dr doesnt really think she has arthritis so we are going to a specialist to figure everything out the dr referred us to the one we are going to.I know something isnt right so i will do everything i can to find out and get her better or to find out and maybe it be something she can outgrow

  • Our friend's son had this problem. The doctors were ready to do surgery when another doctor stepped in and diagnosed him with a viral infection! He was on antibiotics for several weeks. I don't know the exact information, but the poor thing limped for weeks!
