Thanks for posting your query.

You might be suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician/ Rheumatologist nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected and some blood tests to reach the diagnosis under his/her guidance.

Take diet rich in Omega 3 fatty acid , complex carbohydrate, Vit-D &calcium,fruits and vegetables.
Take low fat diet.
Drink ample of water.
Watch your weight.
Exercise regularly.
Have a positive attitude.
