Subject: juvenile arthritis diagnosis
hi, my 12 year old has been diagnosed with JA. he has been discharged from hospital, after having fluid drained and steriod injections into the joints. he has it in most joints ranging in severity. we have to go to clinic on tuesday for more blood results. it has been a real rollercoaster ride. tom could not weightbare at the beginnin gof the week, but has improved somewhat. he has been put on PIROXICAM (feldene) anti inflammatory's, anyone used these???
its awful watching your son in pain and just hope the treatment works, not sure what sub-type he has yet though.
