Treatments & Medication

After years of pain I was diagnosed with A.S. 5yrs ago. Trying to get something to relieve the pain. When I read so many updates and I think thats me. Then go to their story & treatment only to find nothing there. Could I kindly ask all to look at their profile and take 5mins to put what med you use or have used. There might be something that would help. Thank you. Hugs to all xx

Hi, Is There Anything I Can Do To Ease The Discomfort Of The Chronic Popping In My Neck

I suffer from agonising popping and pain in my neck, that I often end up in tears. My back pain leaves me in absolute agony and feeling many more years older than i am, sometimes barely able to move and get about. Is there anything else i could try other than basic pain killers?

Has Anyone Else Developed An Allergic Rash With Biologic Meds?

Has Anyone Else Developed An Allergic Rash With Biologic Meds?

I had to go off of Humira after 7 months of use because I suddenly developed hives. I have been on Remicade for 6 months and have started to get red bumps mostly on my face that are very itchy. I don't want to go off of my medication again, but being itchy every day is unpleasant. My P.A. at rhuemetologist office seems clueless about what to do.
