My son is now 12 i was told 4 years ago that he had jia after he had a sore elbow, then it went into his hips. After treatment and medication he was discharged, and i thought that he would be fine. Now it has started again with the same sore elbow and he is guarding it in the same way. I was never told about remission, I thought he would be fine. Should i take him to his GP.
