hi
these reports are not expected at this age.
the root cause of such deranged blood reports should be found.
a detailed examination by a paediatrician is recommended.

In my opinion you should wait for blood tests results , for now it can simple muscle strain
Nothing much can be done untill we see blood results

Good Luck

The main cause rising ASO titre in ASOT test is the tonsillitis disease especially for children of ages under 15 years old, but ASO level in blood can be elevated by many other diseases as post post-streptococcal complications such as:
Ear infection
Glomerulonephritis
Guttate psoriasis
Mastoiditis
Peritonsillar abscess
Rheumatic fever
Scarlet fever
Sinusitis…
So you should wait until the test results appear.

It could be a simple growing pain …

ESR is a prognostic test not diagnostic
ASO titre doesnot mean that there is rheumatic activity

Let me ask you
prescribe for me the pain
Site, character, severity, when it mostly happens, affected parts or joints , what increases it and what decreases it, and was it followed by tonsillitis, what did you do to her to relief the pain, and its effect, associated with any new skin lesions , discoloration, any abnormal movements…. Is there is limping???
