If Mom Has Rheumatoid Arthritis, Baby May Develop It, Too As the baby boomer population ages, the number of Americans with Alzheimer’s disease will double by 2060, researchers report. Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in 1998, this mother of two says she may not have been able to breastfeed without her trusted pillow. RA is an autoimmune disease in which the body attacks. If your parent has rheumatoid arthritis you may be at increased risk of developing the disease, but it is not guaranteed that you will have RA. There are certain genes, which may be passed down to you from a parent, which give you increased risk.

However, not everyone who has these genes will develop. A person with the HLA genetic marker is five times more likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis than those who do not have this marker. This gene is one of the most significant genetic risk factors.

  • i nave JRA and im 10 i was diagnosed at 3 but i feel better and it is good to now that someone ells  is still delling with what we all are

  • I have JRA and it’s hard to be happy when you are in pain or play around outside. I’m 11 years old and I get 2 shots every single week. Now I have healed and I do gymnastics.

  • im 11 years old i was diagnosed with JRA last year,they first thougt i had lime disease,so at first they even gave me the wrong medicine for lime disease,then they took a punction they were shure it was lime disease but it wasnt so we went to a total other hospital and they told me i didnt have lime disease but JRA now its going better they gave me an injection but i sometimes still need to take my medicines.

  • My sister has (JIRA) Juvenile idiopathic rhemathid arthritis she has had it since she was 7 years old and now she is almost 13 and has pain everyday and she says it sucks every 3 months she has to go.to the doctor for it and she has alot of bad days where she lays in bed all day.

  • I’ve had JRA for a while now, and i cannot bend my legs for a long amount of time, and my parents get really mad when this happens, especially when we’re on a car ride and i complain about needing to stretch out my legs lmao.

    We haven’t been to the doctor to discuss my JRA in about two years, which sucks because i can only take Advil for the pain and not prescription drugs xD I’m not sure why i’m sharing this, i just saw everyone else was doing so, so yeah.

  • My mom passed JRA on to me. She got it from her dad. His mom gave it to him. I have decided it would be too big a risk to have kids, considering that.

  • I was diagnosed with JRA when I was three. I’m currently 23, and have been on enbrel for years. Im now in nursing school. I have bad days, but life has been good to me overall. I want to hug both these babies so much.

  • I also have Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. I feel these kids pain. I have had JRA since I was five. In 2009, a year after my brother was born, I was diagnosed with this disease. I also have things like
    A. D. D, OCD, asthma, and other skin problems. JRA is a disease where your immune system fights off good cells and bad cells, your average immune system fights off bad cells and keeps the good cells. My immune system still keeps the good cells but often fights it off which leads to me getting sick. Letting the bad cells in also leads to me getting sick. Having JRA is a struggle in life. I have been fighting JRA since I was five. I was even the sponsor for the first Jingle Jog in December of 2016 where we ran or walked 3 miles or rode in my papaw’s truck who also happens to be the jailer. It was truly an honor for me to be the sponsor for a run dedicated to people who have JRA.

  • I got diagnosed yesterday, it only affects 10,000 people in Ireland (where i live).I only have it in my right hand and the index finger and thumb in my left. Its pretty bad, its swelling alot. But why me?

  • Stay strong emlovveshirses100, I do not know your pain, but I feel it in your story. I hope that your pain goes away someday…. Keep strong!

  • i have (JRA) in my feet, wrists and now knees and i am 15. As much as i hate it and wish it wasn’t there, i wouldn’t be without it if that sounds wierd because it has made me who i am today:)

  • My 6 year old ister was diagnosed with Juvinille Rhemitoid Idiopathic Arthirits. It is in over 40 of her joints. She is a dancer and at the age of 3 she hurt her knee. A year later her knees were swollen and we went to emergency rooms getting it drained out. We finally got the diagnoses and she hs to get 2 injections a week. She is much tinier then her age group. She is 3ft and weighs 30 pounds. She is always in allot if pain and is getting better day by day.

  • I am someone who has had juvenile arthritis for six years all through my legs and jaw. I do get pain a lot, but with my INTENSE medications it doesn’t effect my life to the detrimental extent that the video shows. I guess I go a bit slower when walking, going down large steps (climbing over rocks at the beach) and things like that but I feel like this video makes it look SUPER awful and like it ruins your life. Yeah I go to the doctor, get MRI’s, blood tests, surgeries, take medication etc. but I have a pretty normal life.

  • Im in the middle of confusion if I have JRA or not my doctor is still examining if I have. I pray I wont have JRA and I pray to those who have I hope theres a cure for this

  • I’m concerned I have it in a mild form, One some days my joint in my ankles, knees, fingers, wrists, and elbows lock. I overall have pain in my ankles almost all the time, and my skin heals EXTREMELY slowly.

  • I also suffer from JIA. I’ve overall had 4 steriod injections in my right knee, 2 in my left and 2 in my left ankle. I take 4 methotrexate tablets on a Friday. I was diagnosed when I was 10 and I’m now 14 almost 15.
    To start with they didn’t know what to diagnose it as. They thought it was growing pains.
    When my knee started to swell really big they finally diagnosed me with JIA. At first I was confused and didn’t know much about it. They started me on 6 tablets of methotrexate and slowly upped the dose to 8 and then when they didn’t work I was put on the injection form. That was the absolute worst. They hurt and stung like crazy:(
    After 2 years of medication they decided to try and stop my medication to see how I was doing in August 2016. They said if it doesn’t flare up for 6-12 weeks after then your highly likely to have out grown it.
    So it got to December 2016 and I was doing great, a few aches and pains but nothing major. Until near Christmas when my right knee started to become really stiff and sore. It then swelled and I could really bend it.
    We had a hospital appoint the next week and so when we went she said the bloods had show some raised inflammation levels:( she examined my joints and said that it was back and I’d need another steroid injection and they’d drain the fluid. Last Tuesday they drained 22ml of fluid and things got better.
    Until Wednesday. My left knee started to get stiff and it’s getting worse.:( I’m devistated because I feel like there’s someone wrong with me. Like it’s my fault I couldn’t get rid of it.I can only hope that I grow out of it.
    (Sorry it’s so long, thank you so much if you read it all) xx

  • I have JRA and other autoimmune diseases… Reading through the past comments I saw how many other people have this and it makes me feel good that I’m not alone.:)

  • Lol, that teenage boy acts a lot like a little adult, super cute. My maternal grandmother was born with JRA. Kids these days are very lucky to have such easy access to meds. My grandmother had to live for weeks and months at a time in a children’s hospital in order to access proper medical care. Ballet was out of the question since she had to wear corrective shoes, and she never had full function of her fingers.

  • I really feel for these kids. I am 48 years old and I was diagnosed with RA, at the age of 45. Like them I also asked myself why me? However, looking at these kids, I can say that I had easy, having this disease at the age of 45 it’s bad, but having this debilitating disease at such young age it’s the worst of all. I hope they can find a cure for JRA much faster, because no child should have to go through this debilitating disease. CURE FOR JRA NOW!

  • I am 12 years old. I was diagnosed with JRA at 11. When I found out I stayed in solitude in my room for around a week, crying myself to sleep every night. I still struggle with pain in my knees, wrists, fingers, and ankles. I also have bone Eurovision on my left hand and have to take small doses of methotrexate (cancer medication) to eat away at the bone. I have always seen myself as an outcast, everyone thinks because I have these problems I am different and wired and emotional. It’s a horrib

  • Thank you for this powerful testimonies. Living with RA has been a challenging, I learn to accepted, but I toke the decision to don’t let RA to define my life. I did make big life changes, and learn to manage my pain without opioids. I love my life and yes I have bad days, but I don”t let that days to stop my life, I continue doing exercise and eating healthier. Thank you again for the video.

  • I have lupus, ra, & SEVERAL others. My last pregnancy was the worst I’ve been in a flare the past 4 years since & came home from having him with pneumonia. Still not under control….. if you or someone you know suffers from a chronic condition please accept help and or give and be there for that person because without support we can’t live. I’m suffering and can’t imagine anyone else going through this alone.
