    Possible auto Immune Disorder?

    My daughter is 13 and is extremely active. She is a former competitive gymnast and now plays volleyball, basketball and runs track. She has always complained about things hurting. We've chalked it up to athletics and told her to ice and stretch. Due to some back pain she's been having lately, we had the pediatrician check it out. X-rays came back clear. However her bloodwork did not.

    We've been referred to a pediatric rheumatologist. However, there is only one in our city and he can't see her until April! I'm researching other cities and keep running into the fact there is just one and no one can see her until April or June.

    I'm concerned about what this could be. Her lab results are below. Any insight while we wait for an opening is much appreciated. Thanks!

    UPDATES: Felt like I should also note she's been suffering from back pain at least 3 years and has also been diagnosed with sesamoiditis in both feet. Back pain is low back centered over her SI joints.

    ASO AB Titer 256
    C Reactive Protein - Normal
    Rheumatoid factor normal
    ANA Titer 1:40 - Speckled pattern - abnormal
