stay strong I don't know if you are close enough to try go to the Mayo clinic but if so, I was very impressed with them. I am so sorry that you have to go through this. It is heart breaking to watch our babies suffer I have a child with JRA as well. Last Friday my son had surgery to put all of his carpals in his right wrist back in place. unfortunately, due to an injury at age 7 with subsequent wrist stiffness, he went undiagnoised, exrays, cat scans mri's test and biopsy all revealed nothing. Only one out of 6 doctors suspected he had JRA. Unfortunately no one exrayed or ran any other test until this year when another injury moved the scaphoid on top of the one next to it. now his are and wrist are a mess and his left knee swelled in May causing the left leg to grow faster than the right so we have a slight descrepancy in length.
