    Hi, I'm a 21 year old female, college student 5'4" 145 lbs, and have been experiencing a tremendous amount of pain and swelling in my knees that runs down my legs to my ankles. Also on my elbows, wrists, and sometimes fringers. The pain keeps me up at night, is this some sort of arthritis? What should I do to minimize the pain?.

    The first thing you need to do is find out what you're dealing with. Then you can worry about how to treat it. Go see your doctor and have some tests run. At that point he may or may not send you to a specialist.
