JIA and adulthood general wonkiness.


Hi all, so I've had JIA for over 30 years and for I would say the last 15 years I've buried my head in the sand and been in denial that anything is wrong with me. However things are catching up with me and I'm now having to try and sort things out.

I just wondered if there was anyone else out there that suffers from growth problems from JIA and Methotrexate use that has causes leg length discrepancies, Spinal scoliosis, wonky hips, arm, hand and feet size discrepancies and a wonky/painful jaw at all?

Any help or information on this would be amazing for a slightly wonky 34 year old, who's trying to glue herself back together haha!

    Hi @Michelle1189 Nice to meet you.

    Sorry I did not have JIA luckily for me my problems started well into adulthood. I thought maybe if posted a reply it would bring your post back up and someone else who can relate might see it.

    What I will say though is many of us here are a bit wonky due to thinks like spinal scoliosis, hip issues etc so I hope you don't feel too alone.

    take care
