It is apparent to me after reading your son's story that there is some degree of impatience in your thinking. Remember that medicine is not a perfect science. It is constantly evolving. You must not change the treatment providers in this way, or your son will never reach a diagnosis.
Having said that, I can understand your impatience. You should channelise it by asking for a second opinion
. Rheumatoid arthritis
is a possibility, but so is toxicity due to Vitamin A
that he was taking, probably for his acne). I really feel sorry that your son is unable to participate in any sports because of the several bone and joint problems that he is having. Please consult a rheumatologist
as soon as possible.
Thank you for the question.
