Children with Arthritis - Still Waiting in Pain
565, that is the number of children waiting to see a Consultant Paediatric Rheumatologist for treatment for JIA. The latest figures show that the waiting list crisis has deepened, with the number of children waiting in pain now far higher than the end of April this year - with a 46% increase. This is a national crisis, so enough is enough. As part of National Arthritis Week, we are calling for the urgent appointment of a third Consultant Paediatric Rheumatologist to be appointed at Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin to help ease the huge burden on overstretched services. Children on waiting lists are not just waiting in pain; they are also at risk of permanent, irreversible joint damage that can impact on their ability to live a normal life. So, this National Arthritis Week (10th-16th October) we are asking the public to help us put an end to Waiting In Pain. Help us by signing our petition. http://bit.do/ArthritisIrelandPetition or make a donation by clicking here.

Living with childhood Arthritis
This was shot in 2006 (with Ted Haller) and one of the most heartwarming yet sad stories I've done. These kids live in so much pain yet have learned how to deal with it. It's been years since I've seen these kids who are starting to grow up now...I wonder how they are doing?

Shay; my young life with arthritis
Arthritis Care makes a huge difference to children, like Shay, who are living with the daily challenges of arthritis. We run a range of workshops and activity weekends where first timers are welcomed and guided by a leader and youngsters of the same age who all have arthritis themselves. Children are coaxed out of their solitude and loneliness. Above all, being with others who are living full lives, despite their arthritis, inspires these young first timers to see a better future. Please help children with arthritis to deal with pain, make friends and have fun. With your help, they’ll soon be doing things they only ever dreamed of and will face a future full of confidence and friendship. Visit arthritiscare.org.uk for more information.

Diagnosing childhood arthritis - Newcastle University
International Research Impact: http://bit.ly/impact-yt Doctors all over the world are now using a simple clinical skill to help recognise the most common form of childhood arthritis, thanks to research by paediatric rheumatologists at Newcastle University. Professor Helen Foster explains how she set about improving the teaching of skills to identify juvenile idiopathic arthritis after research highlighted that many doctors were unable to diagnose the condition which can leave patients deformed, blind and with a poor quality of life if not treated promptly. She is filmed at the Great North Children’s Hospital, which is part of Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and is where she puts into practice her knowledge of childhood arthritis by treating many children and young people in her role as a consultant paediatric rheumatologist.

CHILDREN get arthritis too!
Arthritis affects over 1,000 children in Ireland. The day a child is diagnosed with arthritis their carefree childhood stops. Overnight their lives become about managing the terrible pain that they experience, missing school, hospital stays and an often frightening regime of joint injections and other therapies. The treatment of arthritis can have a severe effect on the child’s self-esteem and is very aggressive. When asked children often say that their pain is not just pain but severe pain. This has huge implications for children and how they manage their daily lives, activities that most of us take for granted such as brushing our teeth, getting dressed or attending school prove very problematic for children with arthritis. Something as simple as to receive a hug can cause a child huge discomfort or pain. Elisha Dillon who features in the video has had arthritis since she was just one-year-old. She is now 9 and struggles daily. Elisha's mother Paula says, “It is an invisible disease that eats away at her daughter from the inside.” Arthritis Ireland has launched this online video campaign to shift public perceptions about the condition to mark National Arthritis Week 2015, 12th - 18th October.

The pain and discomfort that it causes can impact upon their quality of life and can be associated with other health complications. Our children and young people need and deserve to receive prompt, timely access to care, diagnosis and clinical assessment. #SeeMe The #SeeMe campaign is supported by AbbVie. #SeeMe

A Child with Juvenile Arthritis ...Savannah's story... hopeforsavannah.blogspot.com
This is a video featuring Savannah, the junior honoree for the Montgomery, AL 2012 Jingle Bell Run benefiting the Arthritis Foundation. Savannah was diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (also known as Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis) at the age of eight years old. It started in her fingers and is now throughout most of her body. As a result of great doctors, powerful medicines, and lots of prayer, she is doing much better these days. However, she still endures pain daily. We need a cure for the 50 million Americans who suffer with some form of arthritis, as well as for the 300,000 children who also suffer with this disease.

Arthritis Ireland: Children Waiting In Pain, National Arthritis Week Campaign, URGENT Appointment.
Arthritis Ireland: Children Waiting In Pain Campaign - URGENT Appointment of a third Consultant Paediatric Rheumatologist. National Arthritis Week 2016 Children with arthritis are fed up waiting in pain. 565 is the number of children waiting to see a consultant paediatric rheumatologist for the treatment of childhood arthritis, Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). The latest figures show that the waiting list crisis has intensified, with the number of children waiting in pain for over a year and a half increasing by an exponential 400% since January 2016. More than 1,200 children are living with arthritis in Ireland today, making it as common as childhood diabetes. However, the paediatric rheumatology service at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin (OLCHC) is inadequately staffed to deal with the volume of children waiting to be seen. There are just two consultant paediatric rheumatologists appointed for the entire country to cater for children who live with constant pain in their joints and many other parts of their bodies. There is no cure for arthritis but with the correct standards of care children can have as normal and as active a life as possible. This is a national crisis, so enough is enough. As part of National Arthritis Week, Arthritis Ireland are calling for the urgent appointment of a third consultant paediatric rheumatologist to be appointed at OLCHC to help ease the huge burden on the already overstretched services. Children on waiting lists are not just waiting in pain; they are also at risk of permanent, irreversible joint damage that impacts on their ability to live a normal a life as possible.

Running with Arthritis
Watch our video to see how a young medical student hasn't let the condition stop her running the London Marathon. At just 23, medical student Cat Bull is one of ten million people in the UK living with arthritis. While the condition is often associated with the older generations, Cat is one of thousands of young adults and children living with the inflammatory form of the disease, rheumatoid arthritis, in the UK. Whilst rheumatoid arthritis is a painful and often debilitating condition it hasn't stopped Cat embarking on the Virgin London Marathon, one of the biggest athletic challenges in the world. Cat had a hip replacement when she was 14 yet she is still planning on running the 26 mile course. When the training gets tough for Cat, remembering that a few years ago she could barely walk and her mum had to feed and dress her, keeps her going. She says: "Being able to even attempt the marathon is fantastic. Inevitably the illness has given me problems along the way but I refuse to let the disease ruin my life or stop me achieving my goals." In the following video she tells how she has slowly built up to the big race and how she has overcome the obstacles along the way. She'll also give a fascinating insight into what it's like to live with arthritis at such a young age. For more information visit http://www.arthritisresearchuk.org/

Living With Rheumatoid Arthritis For 21+ Years [Personal Story]
Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis Interview at http://rapainmanagement.com/living-with-rheumatoid-arthritis/ SUBSCRIBE. RATE. COMMENT. In her personal story about living with rheumatoid arthritis, Jenn shares what its been like living with RA for the last 21 years – the good, the bad, the ugly – and specifically she shares about her daily battles with the disease and how she manages her arthritis pain most effectively. --------------------------------------------- Krysti: Hi I’m Krysti and I’m here with Jenn. The reason for recording this audio-video is to share a real-life story about living with rheumatoid arthritis and what it means to be diagnosed with RA. We’ll talk about some of the struggles and the successes that happen with the disease, from a personal account. So the goal is to be able to chat with you Jenn and to talk a little bit about what it’s been like through your journey. That way people who are dealing with some of the same challenges can relate to your story and recognize that they’re not alone in their journey through this disease. So first and foremost, I want to tell your story, so maybe you can start out by telling me how you found out that you had RA. How old were you? What was it like in the beginning. Jenn: Okay, I was fourteen and I felt like I had jammed my finger. My finger joint swelled up and it was probably for, I don’t know, a week or two and then I realized it’s probably not a jammed finger, maybe something’s wrong, maybe it’s broken, I don’t know. So I told my mom and then my mom took me to the doctor and our primary care doctor, my pediatrician, said that she thought it was juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and that she was going to send me to a rheumatologist. She said, that even though I hadn’t presented all the symptoms for RA…I think you have to have symptoms for like six months, or for a certain amount of time before they’ll actually send you to a rheumatologist, she said that that’s what she pretty much thought it was. So they sent me right away to the rheumatologist and did blood work and urine tests and everything like that and confirmed that it was JRA. Krysti: So you were fourteen when that happened? Jenn: Yes. Krysti: So when you went to the doctor to get the blood tests and everything, did they tell you about your diagnosis, did you have to come back? Tell me a little bit about that process, if somebody is experiencing symptoms now and they’re curious about what it’s like to go to the doctor, what to expect, I’m sure things change over time, but what was that like for you? Jenn: Yeah I think it’s probably a lot different now than it was back then but essentially my pediatrician just said, “You have juvenile rheumatoid arthritis,” and I had no idea what that was and what it even meant. So it didn’t even click or mean anything to me at that point in time. I just went home and somebody said, “What’s wrong?” and I said, “I have arthritis,” and went about my day. So it didn’t really have any effect on me then, the physical symptoms weren’t bad enough then for me to realize what an impact it was going to have, but it didn’t take long for the physical symptoms to come. Probably within a month, maybe two months is when all the physical symptoms started getting really bad. For example, I couldn’t open the truck door to get in the car and I couldn’t open a milk jug and going upstairs was really hard because my knees had gotten so swollen. So, it was little things like that started happening in my daily life, then I started realizing that everything is different.
