I'm hoping that you guys will able to help me by sharing your experiences with me and perhaps giving me some advice about dealing with arthiritis.
My 12 year old Harry was diagnosed with arthiritis today. They are still unsure as to what type but the pediatrician has referred him to a specialist to find out the full extent of whats going on for him. For 6 months he has been having swelling in his kness, ,ankles, calfs which is there for a day or two, and then dissapears for a few days to return again. Over the past 5 weeks it has also spread to his back, shoulders, neck and thumb joints. He is totally drained of energy and spends all his time lying on the sofa.
Could you guys let me know how you cope with flair ups, feeling poorly and school, and for the sportier people have you been able to carry on ??
