Hello, I am new to this forum and reaching out to anyone with a similar diagnosis. My 4 year old daughter was diagnosed with pauciarticular JRA (in our case just one joint) in December. we're on Naproxen and things seem to be heading in the right direction as far as the joint status. We have (for years) serious sleep issues with her (common for systemic from what I have learned but not for pauciarticular) and recently we have a random rash flaring up (again common for systemic but not pauciarticular). We have food allergies in our family (father) which could account for the sleep and rash issues, but I just thought I would ask anyone if they are experiencing these issues with their children recently diagnosed with JRA.
Thank you for your time and comments
