Hi, I’m 16 and have juvenile arthritis. I have never met someone who has this too but would love to come into contact with someone who went through the same thing. If you feel the same way please contact me.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its autoimmune disease and can be well controlled if there is good compliance to drugs.Besides you should be screen for other autoimmune diseases as well like celiac disease etc.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
