: Is there anyone around my age that has been diagnosed with arthritis or connective tissue dissorder?
: I am 12 yrs old and would appreciate any response.
:I am in my 50's now with arthritis, but as a child I couldn't run too much or my knees and legs would hurt very badly. I don't know if it was arthritis or not. My mother would put a warm towel on them so I could sleep. Were you ill, stressed, or did you have surgery or something before you got it? I've read that in children, remissions are frequent. Hopefully, that will be the case with you.
