Subject: Hya are there any children with arthritis here?
Hi, i'm mum to Arran who is 11 and has arthritis in his hip, knee, foot and back. He was only told in Feb this year that he had it and it's been a struggle as you will all know.
He was on Methotrexate and Naproxen, then got 3 days of IV drip containing Methyl Prednisole and now is on Enbrel Injections. He has to go in for joint injections in a couple of weeks as well.
Now he has come down with an infection which may be Glandular Fever but i'm hoping it's only a cold he has. We have been given antibiotics for him and at the moment he is feeling so floored by it all. Poor soul, i feel awful for him.
Do any of you have any children with Arthritis so we can compare notes?
