Thanks for posting your query

You might be suffering from Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis with systemic involvement.

Are you taking drugs for JRA like NSAIDs, DMARDs OR Biologicals.

At present your systemic symptoms are prominent.

So you should go to the hospital for detail exam, some inv, & treatment acc. to that.
