I am a 34year old lady, Malawian and my daughter is going through such pain. My daughter`s name is Betty, and she is only 8years old. Since from her childhood she has been suffering from this disorder. I am not at peace when i see her crying in deep pain i just wish i can share with her. The only medicine we are given at the Hospital is Pannado and sometimes Brufen and it seems these pain killers do not ease the pain. I wanted to know if there is ever any medicine that can help her stop or even control the pain before it start? I feel sorry for her because she is a very hard working kid and this sickness is disturbing her education. Please help me.

Hi Susan,
Thank you so much for your very much concern about my child`s sickness. Betty is doing fine, though she seems to be under weight. It has taken almost four weeks since she complained about joints, backaches, or even pneumonia issues and she is eating well without giving us problems, that is what makes me happy.
Those people have not answered yet am still waiting from them. I have hope that they will one day. Thank you for the other link which you have given me, i will write them too. I will let you know when i write them and what they are going to tell me.

Thank you susan, once again, keep in touch,
