Re: Unknown pain!

When a young person complains of pains, especially in the knees, doctors always write it off as growing pains, often without checking into it further.

The other doctor I would suggest you see is a Rhuematologist. They deal a lot with connective tissue diseases in addition to arthritis and there are severeal connective tissue diseases or disorders can cause unknown pain and are at times very difficult to even diagnose without seeing a geneticist or other specialist.
