Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis:
The most common symptom of all types of JRA is persistent
joint swelling, pain, and stiffness that typically is worse in the
morning or after a nap. The pain may limit movement of the affected
joint although many children, especially younger ones, will not complain
of pain. JRA commonly affects the knees and joints in the hands and
feet. One of the earliest signs of JRA may be limping in the morning
because of an affected knee. Besides joint symptoms, children with
systemic JRA have a high fever and a light skin rash. The rash and fever
may appear and disappear very quickly. Systemic JRA also may cause the
lymph nodes located in the neck and other parts of the body to swell. In
some cases (less than half), internal organs including the heart and,
very rarely, the lungs may be involved.
Eye inflammation is a potentially severe complication that
sometimes occurs in children with pauciarticular JRA. Eye diseases such
as iritis and uveitis often are not present until some time after a
child first develops JRA.
Typically, there are periods when the symptoms of JRA are
better or disappear (remissions) and times when symptoms are worse
(flare-ups). JRA is different in each child--some may have just one or
two flare-ups and never have symptoms again, while others experience
many flare-ups or even have symptoms that never go away.
Some children with JRA may have growth problems. Depending
on the severity of the disease and the joints involved, growth in
affected joints may be too fast or too slow, causing one leg or arm to
be longer than the other. Overall growth may also be slowed. Doctors are
exploring the use of growth hormones to treat this problem. JRA also may
cause joints to grow unevenly or to one side.
