Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question.
You need to have her evaluated for inflammatory joint disease
There are disorders like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis that can cause these symptoms and occasionally they can start in childhood.
The correct doctor to see is a rheumatologist. That would be my first stop
