A year ago in June we had a diagnosis of polyarticular jia for our daughter. She is 12. We are now starting to get 'used' to the routine of injections but I have noticed the fatigue and also the mood can be quite low sometimes. I am interested to see if anyone thinks this is related to the medication she is on (methotrexate and adalimumab) or whether this is a feature of jia and something we will need to help her to manage. She is going to school and really enjoying secondary and taking part in some sports activities. Great to have found this site and will be grateful for any advice. Thanks
