it is a chronic disease. why you got it. ask your genes. it is genetic some times. methotrexate is a powerful drug. but it will not be given life long. like me you also should take drugs for life long. ususally it will be steroids

The drs suspect my child has juvenail rhematoidal arthritis. He is 4 yr. I must now document his temp every hour. Do they compare it against his own normal temp (between 35-36 degrees celcius), which means that if his temp is 37.5, he has slight fever?
