Just a quick question.  Has anybody had experience with getting leg pains after a virus.  My daughter had viral arthritis when she was 3 after a bad stomach bug.   She was tested with a positive ANA.  The pains went away.
2 years later she had leg pains again and had a positive ANA and a equivocal dsdna.  She was retested a month later and had a negative ANA but a positive dsdna (which the rheumatologist said did not make sense). Again the pains just went away.
She recently had a stomach virus and got the leg pain after and  is now dealing with an eye infection and had been having pain in her left ankle.  There is never any real swelling or redness just pain usually a joint (knee, ankle)

We are going back to the rheumatologist doctor in two weeks but I was just curious if anyone has any experience with the virus connection.  Not looking for medical advise just other experiences.
Guess I was hoping it is just a quirk of her body and nothing too serious.
