17 too old for JRA?

Hello!
My name is Bobbie Jo and I am 17 years old. I have a few health issues, (Turners Syndrome and a minor heart arrhythmia.) Last week my knuckles started hurting terribly on both hands like I had punched a wall. Then the other day my knuckles started getting nodules and bumps on them like little BB's. I consulted my school nurse and she says that it looks like arthritis and stressed that I should get them checked out. My questions:
1) Am I too old to just now develop JRA or something similar at 17.
2) What treatment options do I have if it is indeed arthritis.
3) How do I reduce the size or take care of the awful, and painful, nodules that I have?

Check out the book "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" and it will give you information on how to treat arthritis.  It will tell you the foods you should be eating and the foods you shouldn't be eating.
