My 3rd child has been diagnosed with the same arthritis as her older brother (ankylosing spondylitis ). If people don't remember, I have been dealing with arthritis and my 2nd son since he was 6 years old, he just turned 20. My daughter is 17 and I have been fighting the pediatric rheumatologist for 6 years. I know my children, we finally got her switched to my son's adult care doctor (I love her) and she said no problem to doing the full spine mri, she even called me at 11:15 pm at night, the same day the test was done, to give me the results.

It hasn't sunk in yet, still pissed off with the other doctor for not listening to us, but followe'd her for 6 years! !!
