I was wondering whether there is anybody here that has dealt with Juvenile Rheumatiod Arthritis, I'm not quite sure how different it is from regular rheumatoid arthritis. My daughter has had it for a year and she's been doing great on methotrexate and naproxen, then she started getting the pain back mainly in her neck on Christmas.
