Hi sorry to Hear Must be Scary,i'm now 50 and was showing symptoms at 8yrs my mother had a saying if anyone said my she has lovely rosy cheeks she'd go Oh Darn she's getting sick again,i'd wake up Sore headach tummy pain arms & legs hurt,unfortunatly my Dr told mum give her 2 asprin and send her to school,then at age 10 i had big flare where bed ridden for a few weeks again told its Exhaustion (in a 10yr old?) it went into remission after that untill late teens when another huge flare again this subsuded untill mid 20's when she hit with a bang and stayed,i am not trying to frighten you actually the opposit see i had a lot of gaps where quite ok even got my nursing degree(comes in handy now) and as it was the 60-70's the Drs tended to ignore it rather than id and treat,you have a head start with meds and can help her thru flares,and make the most of remission times.
