Just found this thread now... did you get to see the rheumatologist yet? I have rheumatoid arthritis, was diagnosed just after having DS. He is 2 now. I am 31 and suffer from it mainly in my wrists, although I do go through phases where I suffer with my knee or ankle. Last summer I ran a lot and I found out it had spread to my spine, but after resting up for a few months everything is grand now. Hope you get sorted, if u have any other questions feel free to Pm me!
