I sincerely hope you see another doctor...if the ONLY SYMPTOMS your daughter has is arm and leg weakness...I sincerely DOUBT if that is juvenile arthritis.
Please check this site out:

Given those symptoms you described, I cannot even begin to see how this dr came up with this diagnosis.
Good luck to you.

thank you bettyann for your reply. my daughter has many other symptoms like joint and spine pain and a raised blood ana. i do not have a confirmed diagnosis as waiting to see a rheumatologist. i am just particularly concerned about her level of physical fatigue and general weakness in limbs. i am really hoping somebody else with experience of JA can share any experience of this. thank you again for your reply desperately looking for any information.
