A.S. Face 0186: Steve Symes
Hi my name is steve.s and i live in canada manitoba.
Im 33 years old and have been suffering from AS for 6 years.
When i was a teenager to early twenties i always had lower back problems and thay just got worse going into my 30′s. I seen a doctor that gave me the B27 blood test and sure enough it came back positive for AS. I went into depression big time and im still there, I havent had a job in 5 years because my pain is so bad. So i became a stay at home daddy, everyday is a battle for me i cant bend i sweat like crazy due to anxiety and no meds that ive tryed helped. So what do i do now humm i found treatment in the form of smoking pot and wow my pain and my anxiety was so lowerd that i can play with my loving kids again, and be a more loving husband to my wife (witch is the world to me).
Melanie my wife tells me im such a different person when i smoke. The pain is just not there anymore but theres a problem ( ITS ILLEGAL). At this point i dont care if i get caught because im virtually pain free under the herbs power. I will never take another pill again for my pain, thay just hurt my tummy so bad. But theres also another problem our family only has one income so getting my (herbs or meds ) as i call them only come around once in a while so ya thats right im suffering with out it on a daily basis. my wife wants me to go and get the needle shot for my pain but at this point i think its totally useless. Every doctor ive seen is a pill pusher and that just makes me sick to my tummy, oh just take these and you’ll be fine YA RIGHT.
I hope and just pray that someone reads this and takes my advise on trying the herbs for there AS. when i can get it ,it totally has changed my life to being pain free FOR NOW but yes my spine is fusing and ive come to terms with my body that someday i wont be able to walk and my spine will be curved or in a straight board position. to all that suffers from AS my heart goes to you and your families.
Best of luck steve symes:)
