Yes, I read it. I would expect to see a progressive limp as a result of a real medical problem. I would expect it less in a faking situation. But let me be perfectly clear: A child who refuses for a week to walk without throwing herself to the ground every few steps, injuring herself in the process, is, IMO, a child who needs professional help, of one kind or another. Even if she is faking. Which, honestly, I think is far from clear.
choochoo, I understand. It's a big long six month thread!
I have never heard of that (I have heard of other infections that settle or develop in the hip. I don't THINK I've specifically heard of this one). Your daughter didn't have any pain or didn't complain about it? DD has had no pain with this at all, ever. She doesn't appear to have any numbness or reflex problems. She could also jump on her trampoline and ride her bike the whole time. She's been sick a few times, but never had fever that wasn't directly related to whatever illness she had at the time. I hope your daughter is doing well now!
It's been a long winter.
