Expert Answer :
What is ESR, ASLO, ANA, DsDNA_? Are the joints more involved in morning or night_? Is there any swelling present_? Is there restriction of movement_? What about TM joint and cervical spine_? More detailed history is required. A thorough clinical examination would be needed before one can comment on Methotrexate as it is a drug that needs to be taken for a very long time. Get the child examined by a rheumatologist.
