Pain at the lower back, hip, front thigh, knee and heel.


I am 23 years old, female and a student. I have lower back pain since a month ago and the pain is aggravated when i stand, sit or lie down for 30-60 minutes. From the past 2 weeks i developed hip pain especially at the left side, as well as knee pain (more at the right knee). I also have mild effusion on both knees (but there is NO redness or hotness). Sometimes i can feel pain at my front thigh and ankle. And since one and a half year ago, i suffer from pain at both of my heels and it become worsened when i stand and walk for too long.

I have bronchial asthma since infant but it become more stable as i grow up. My brothers have allergic rhinitis and my sister has eczema. One of my cousin has SLE.

I had done blood test recently for ESR and C-Reactive protein. My ESR level is high while CRP is nomal. But the physician said my ESR level is high maybe due to asthma ( I had asthma attack during the week i did the blood test). But I'm afraid if I am actually are going to have SLE like my cousin did.

Thank you.
