A.S. Face 2059: Tracy Halls

Face 2059

My name is Tracy Halls I’m 34, married to an amazing man who I’ve been with since I was 16 and we three children ages 15, 12 and 9!
I enjoy fishing both sea and lake fishing, photography and arts and crafts! I am a trained car mechanic but can no longer do that due to the AS but still help to keep the family car on the road when I’m able to.
I’ve been diagnosed with AS for about 5 years but have had symptoms for many years before that diagnosis. I was passed through various departments in the hospital and had various wrong diagnosis before I got diagnosed AS along with a few additional issues diagnosed!
I have been treated with etoricoxib and co-codamol since first being diagnosed but these are no longer effective and I’m now awaiting my latest MRI and blood work results and have to make the daunting decision of if I should start biologicals or not.
I try not to let my AS win and make as many memories with my husband and children as I can!
