My 5yr old daughter has been complaining about the back of her legs behind her knees hurting occasionally for the last 2 years. Sometimes it hurts so much she cries and needs ibuprofren to ease the achiness. I brought it up to her doctor. Her doctor suggested doing an xray of her legs. She has also had pneumonia 3 times in her life so far, none that required hospitalization.

I was just recently told that I am ANA + and RNP +, possible diagnosis of Lupus or MCTD. Should I take my daughter in for ANA testing due to her symptoms and my positive test results?
History: 2002 positive for antiphospholipid antibody, Ectopic pregnancy. 2005 Placental Abruption with son (lost him), after birth positive for Anticardiolipin antibody. No longer positive. 2007 gave birth to beautiful daughter. 2012 miscarriage. 2013: ANA +, RNP +

Symptoms: heart palpitations, lightheaded, fatigue, body aches, headaches

I would ask your doctor to test for RA and lupus or anything he thinks might be causing the issues!
