Sophie Shares What She Thought Was Wrong With Her Knee Before Her Diagnosis (VIDEO)

Before her juvenile rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis, Sophie recalls what she assumed was the causing her knee pain.

Well, we didn’t know because it originated when I fell off a balance beam in kindergarten, and what my neighbor found out that my knee was swollen, and we had no idea. So we went to the doctor, and the doctor was about to drain my knee and said if the fluid was red and blood then it was just an injury, but if it was clear, I think clear, then it was a disease. So when we drained my knee it came out clear, and that meant that it was a disease, and we didn’t know so that’s where we took it from there.
