I was recently diagnosed with Still's disease. It is inflammtion of the internal organs as well as the joints. I guess this is the reasons for the high sed rates (fevers), vaginal inflammation, mouth sores, ...etc. It is a form of JRA (arthritis). I wanted to bring it to the attention to other members in case others are experiencing simular symptoms. It is another autoimmune disease. It effects the heart and lungs and can become pretty damaging to the body if and when it gets to its progressive stages.
Hope everyones in good health and keeping their spirits up! Wanda
