Was just wondering if there were other parents of young kids with juvenile arthritis around to chat or swap stories or notes. Our daughter 2 yrs old (our youngest and second girl twin) was diagnosed about 3 months ago. She just started limpimg out of the blue. Not due to a fall or injury etc. She has already had 2 joint injections, 1 in her right knee and 1 in her left ankle on the outside. She has just seen the rheumatologist again this week and the injections have worked but she now needs another injection on the inside of her ankle. We also do hydrotherapy with her once a week plus she is on anti-inflammatory medication. Her twin (another girl born 1 min before her) does not have JA.
Anyway was just wondering if there was anybody going through same situation and wanted to share. I don't know of anyone else that has a child with this condition. (not even at hydro!) I did meet some mums at the hospital when she had first lot of injections done but the kids were a lot older.
Thanks in advance.
