My son is 11 with t1d. He also has dermographic urticaria, or skin writing, which is another autoimmune disorder, & he is allergic to antibiotics (or presents as such with severe swelling & hives) He has reacted badly to every single family of them. We are currently going to Duke for another diagnosis. My Mother had RA so I am very familiar with it. How old is your son? RA is so rare in children. Bless his heart.

My daughter is 16 and was diagnosed at 11. When she was 14 she was diagnosed with RA and Celiac disease. She is in some sort of pain almost daily and is on a very strict diet to help with all 3. It's very unusual for kids to have RA but it does happen, so your not all alone.

My Mom swore by tart cherry juice & she also used lavender, marjoram, peppermint, & eucalyptus essential oils for pain. Young Living has great oils.
