How did Kamala get her powers and become Ms. Marvel?
i've been trying to get help with the pain of partially dislocating joints since i was a kid. but teachers/parents/etc always told me it was "growing pains" and that i was "too young to be in pain"
guess who has to get an EDS evaluation now?
I now get Remicade infusions every 6 weeks to help keep my UC in remission and manage my chronic pain. Some infusions take better than others. I still have pain but it is slightly more manageable. My UC is controlled with many medications.
My Ulcerative Colitis caused the inflammation in my body to skyrocket; my body literally attacks itself in an effort to try and heal it. Normal C-Reactive protein counts are less than 10mg; mine was almost 20mg on a good day
Had digestive issues my whole life growing up. They really came to a head when my gallbladder was removed; that's when UC became prominent. With UC came chronic pain; it affected every one of my joints and I was only 22.
