My son Tyler was diagnosed with JAS at the age of 8 but his symptoms started when he was 7 or even before then. It started out in his heels and then went to his ankles, lower back, knees and fingers. He got so bad that he couldn’t walk. The doctors put him in a wheel chair. After many different types of medications the doctors finally found the right combo. Weekly Methotrexate and Enbrel injections have got my now 13-year-old son to be an active happy teen. He is running around with his friends and having a good time. His lower back still hurts but it doesn’t keep him down for long.
