Hi I am 9 years old and I have arthritis the same as you. From Carys

Hi from Carys' mum - I can type a bit faster! Carys was diagnosed when she was 7. Her knees are the most affected joints but she has been on methotrexate for over a year now and has no symptoms at all at the moment. Her legs used to be very stiff and swollen and she would be tired and grumpy. She is much better now and is really good at taking the medicine and at having her blood tests which she used to have once a month but is now having just once every 2 months. Good luck with your treatment, hope things are going well.
