Joint pain: Don't jump to conclusions. You need a complete medical workup to determine the cause of your joint psin
Dr. Jonathan Hausmann

Need to see a doc: Juvenile arthritis is a group of diseases that present with joint stiffness, swelling, and pain in children 16 year of age and under. For this diagnosis, children need to have evidence of swollen joints on examination. At 20 years of age, you can't be diagnosed with juvenile arthritis. However, you can be diagnosed with other types of arthritis if you have swollen joints. See your doc!

Joint pain and chill: If your joints are swollen every day, than you could have JIA. Another possibility is fibromyalgia which causes widespread joint and muscle pain, fatigue, and difficulty sleeping
