I was diagnosed in my early 20s with psorasis and it went away. Never had a flare again until I had my last son when I was 43. It was like my body just gave out. I got a knee replacement. I could barely stand up straight. I was a wreck. My joints would ache. My sacroiliac joints in my hips would get inflamed. Finally after countless doctors I saw a great rheumatologist she did lots of blood work MRI and x-rays and did a thorough questoniaire we discussed the best option and that was Cosentyx. I'm excited to start it. I have to get approval and learn everything I can. I'm new to this process. I know it has affected my organs too and I'm interested in the dirt aspect. I've lost 100 lbs. I went from 340 to 240 since last Aug 2019. So I have my bad days too where I look at my head and cry that my hair is falling out and it takes 40 min to shower. I dread it. It hurts. The scales. The burning and itching. I hate it. The PsA part is crazy. I'm experiencing so many things I'm learning about and I look forward to finding and experiencing together.
