Beginning of my RA Journey

Approximately 13 years ago I woke up one day and couldn’t walk…through many specialists and much diagnostic testing it was determined I have RA, PsA and chronic migraine disease. I have battled through many medication challenges, changes and trials. Enbrel and methotrexate worked very well until I had a toxic reaction to methotrexate…my doc took me off both, now on Remicade infusions. Also on prednisone, Celebrex and hydroxychloroquine. The fatigue and brain pause symptoms really affect daily life. Having some knee, neck, toes and ankle soreness/pain. It affects my sleep and mobility…sometimes feels like I am walking on glass…☹. Hanging in there though and staying pretty positive…I WILL NOT BECOME RA
