My daughter was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic(mainly effecting her ankles) arthritis in February 22, (she’s only 3) since then she’s been put to 4 times to have steroid injections. She was doing really well her joints seemed to be doing really well and I noticed the other day her ankle is starting to swell again. I’ve not come across anyone that is going through this yet. I was feeling really positive that she was doing to so well it’s just horrible to see her on her bad days where she’s not as active as other kids cause she’s in discomfort. I’ve recently come across this page and I was exactly the same until my daughter got diagnosed I thought arthritis was mainly as older age thing. We’ve got an appointment with the rheumatologist later this week so hopefully that will give me some peace of mind.
