Face 1587

I was diagnosed with Ankylosing spondylitis after a year of testing when I started having joint issue immediately following the birth of my son. Enbrel worked for a while. I was put on prednisone and gained 75 pounds in 7 months. I was taken off prednisone and put on Humira which broke me out in shingles on my face and 0 relief. Remicade was my saving grace but after growing a tumor, the FDA will not allow me to continue tnf blockers. I am now on methotrexate while I deal with the rumor growing in my neck. It’s 1ml a week. My hair is falling out and I’m constantly sick. But this is all I have.
