3. But I had symptoms since:
RA since I was five, but I was told I had growing pains and was seeking attention since my symptoms were atypical of usual JRA onset.
Other autoimmune symptoms and IBS since my sophomore year of high school, again going mistaken for physical manifestations of stress.
Scoliosis I never really had any symptoms of to indicate there was a problem. My chronic back pain only started in 2009 when complications became evident.
Endo/pelvic pain since I can remember with my periods (so since I was 10), but again…no one took me seriously until senior year of high school.
