RA: RA often has negative tests. Your age puts you in the danger zone. Careful x-rays of your SI joints & hands may help. Your response to NSAIDs should be positive but not a cure. Look for bumps on the leg and sides of the fingers You are a bit anemic so check the reason for that. That may give us a hint. Iritis is often associated. RA has many cousins like lupus, , psoriatic and other arthritides.

See your doctor.: You should make an appointment for your 11 year old with a pediatrician very soon as this could be more serious than just knee and hip pain.
