My daughter (just2) was diagnosed with jia earlier this year. She has it in her toes ankles knee elbow wrists fingers and neck.....
She is currently on methotrexate but seems to be really struggling at the moment. Very stressed seems in pain (cradles her hands a lot) she wakes all through the night and pulls at her legs. I don't think it helps that she isn't talking yet as the frustration obvious. I do give ibuprofen and Calpol. Was just wondering if anybody has any other ideas/suggestions? I have a 6 year old son who is fantastic but I feel has taken very much a back seat as Alice demands so much of my time. It's hard to get anything done as she just wants to be help all the time. It's so hard to see as she is normally such a Bubbly child.
I look forward to hearing back
