Find support: It sounds like it might be difficult to get this under control, but w/ help you might. If you can find a counselor/therapist to help you navigate the medical system - there may be anti-inflammatory efforts to make - dietary, medicinal, etc. But it demands assertiveness. Lifelong steroids are dangerous, so it's hard. http://www.arthritis.org/conditions-treatments/disease-center/juvenile--arthritis/.
