Hi Iona,
That is really sad that your son may have pa at such a young age,
I have pa myself the doctor's think I may have had it since aged ten.
All I can tell you is that it is a very painful disease and that you have good day's and very bad day's.
It affect's all the joint's hand's,feet,neck,back,hip's,arm's,
it also affect's the musscle's and skin and hair it also affect's your Nail's.
You also feel very tired with it sometime's I feel that this is one of the worse symptom's of it.
But there are a lot of different treatment's for pa which can help a lot and as your son is very young there is time to save his joint's from getting deformed and can help a lot with the disease.
I really do hope this has helped you and that if your son does have it,he will get on the right treatment that suit's him.
There are a lot of people on here with this disease who may be able to tell you more.
Please let us know how you get on Deborah x.
