South Berwick teen living with arthritis - News - fosters.com - Dover ...

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Katherine Wilder doesn’t remember much about her juvenile arthritis diagnosis other than that she was unable to walk across the hospital floor because her knees were too swollen.

She was 3 when her family found out. “It’s hard to remember that far back,” said the 14-year-old South Berwick resident and eighth-grader at Marshwood Middle School.

Katherine’s mother Kristen Wilder remembers her daughter getting sick right before her third birthday, something the Wilders passed off as a cold. It was strep throat, but didn’t get any better despite medical treatment. The doctors were suspicious.

Wilder said Katherine had the most amazing pediatrician at the time, who told them her daughter might have juvenile arthritis. The pediatrician delivered the news "without trying to freak us out," Wilder said.

According to Wilder, Katherine would get fevers that wouldn’t go away, multiple rashes and would stop walking for periods of time, all indicators of juvenile arthritis.
