I was just wondering if anyone else has a child with JRA or Celiac Disease??? My nine year old son has both.
Yeah juvenile rhuematoid arthritis. I just brought him to the ENT today too and now they are saying that he has reflux pharangitis and I have to restrict his diet even more...not sure what I am going to do with his food now.
My 4 yrs old has JRA. He was diagnosed last year. He has it on his left side in his wrist and knee. They test him regularly for his eyes and other places he could get it! He is on Methotrexate ( Immune suppressant) and Neproxin ( anti-inflamitory). He deals real well. I am still doing more research on it though. I have found that it could very well be linked to my Hashimoto's ( Thyroid Problem) and everything that I found says it is, but not in so many words. He gets grumpy from being in pain on bad days and he gets to where he don't want to walk or go bye-bye. but we are dealing one day at a time!
My nephew has Celiac Disease. He found out right after his 12th birthday, almost a year ago. It was a hard adjustment for him to be entering middle school when kids just want to be "normal" and have this "odd" diet.
