Am new to this, just wanted to be able to share my experience's and hopefully learn more about this illness, My 3 year year old daughter was diagnosed at 18 months with jia, is has spead from knees to ankles and most recently her wrist and finger, she has just had her 5th set of joint injections and is now moving onto injection methotraxate after a year of tablets,.
Would just like to talk to others in same situation, as although friend and family try to understand it is very difficult.
