    Default Children with arthritis and or RLS

    So does anyone have a child with either of these?

    My dd is going for a blood test this week for the arthritis as she has pains (to the point of horrible crying) in her knees and feet.

    She gets its only on colder days and almost always when it rains and 96% its in the evening.
    My father has arthritis to the extreme!!
    And i have i have a small does of it

    I also have RLS and iv had it since primary school, i thought this could also be a possiblity as it can get passed on (mum had it also).

    Iv asked her what it feels like and she says it just hurts really bad and she tends to move her legs alot when in pain (another reason i thought rls)

    However the doctor seems 100% certain children just dont get RLS. However having gotten it myself and other info on it children certainly do get it.

    Anyway im just after advice and info.
    If they bloods come back fine then he might do a xray but his pretty much said he wont even go to try diagnose RLS .
