Hi,
My youngest son is 5 and was just diagnosed with JIA. He is currently taking Naproxen but I think it might be too soon to see results yet. I know that we have a lot of doctors appointments ahead of us, I was just wondering if anyone might have any advice or success stories that might give me a little encouragement? I don’t think I am able to wrap my mind around everything just yet.

Below is a link to some information that may help you get started, I hope this helps. I also hope that your upcoming doctor’s appointments go well and that your daughter begins to feel better soon.

Thanks fro providing that information @michellesjoy, there is just so much information out there, it is hard to know where to start. The naproxen seems to be helping some now so I am hopeful. I’ll post updates when I can.
