My 6 year old daughter often gets toxic synovitis after having a cold. It is usually pain in her thy but this time she is complaining of pain in her knee and hands. I can't find anything that would explain the pain in her hands and I'm wondering if it is associated with the synovitis or her cold in any way.

I am 67 year old female with knee pain on the right knee only.. After several tests including MRI, X ray, Dexascan etc, doctors say I have osteoartritis of right knee but since it was swollen when it first started they have also concluded I have mild synovitis. I have been put on a daily medication of HCQS 400 taken once daily, Calcium supplements and also Defza Cortison 5 mg every alternate day. But after having them for a year I realised these are medicines of Rheumatoid arthritis. When I spoke to my doctor he said if I dont have these steroids I may have increased muscle pull. I am not convinced. I run a kindergarten school and am quite mobile, though the muscles around the knee hurts at times and gets quite painful. I wish to know if at all these medicines have any impact on my situation. Or if proper physio therapy will help my condition
