    Dear Jordansmum

    Thank you for your posting on the forum. You would need to speak to the rheumatologist who is managing your son’s treatment about checking to see if your son’s new symptoms are the result of his arthritis. Can you give the rheumatology department a call and speak to them about this? There is often a rheumatology specialist nurse that you can speak to who is part of the rheumatology team. If you would like more support there is a parent’s online support group in the southern region and there is more information about this on http://www.arthritiscare.org.uk/InyourArea/SouthEngland/Parentsonline if you would like to find out more about this. I hope that this is helpful.

    Best Wishes
    Dawn
