Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

Posted by @jra in Bones, Joints & Muscles, Nov 18, 2011

I am new to the site. Our daughter is 13 and was just diagnosed with JRA. I'm really interested in finding people who are her age that are going through it so she can facebook them. We live in a small town and the nurse said that she has never had anybody go through the school system here that has ever had JRA and our daughter is in tears becaus "nobody understands the pain i'm feeling mom"

Even though I am at the other end of the scale age wise, I felt like sharing my experience for what it may be worth to you.

I woke up one morning about 8 years ago with very sharp pain in my wrist. I saw my Orthapedic Dr. who did an MRI and diagnosed it as advanced R.A. I was told the only advise they could give me was to take Aleve. I had heard of a natural rememdy referred to as MSM, (which can be checked out on the internet) and decided to give it a try.

I was diagnosed with JRA when I was 13. I'm now in 28 and show very few symptoms. If she would like someone to talk to about this I am available.
