A.S. Face 0197: Karl Scholes

When I was diagnosed it was thanks to a chiropractor. I had gone to my Gp but she just told me that I had strained my back, Or was still recovering from a good kick in that I had. The Chiropractor tried to manipulate my back but as soon as he touched my ribs he got an elbow to the face. After he took some x-rays he insisted my Gp do some blood work. I tested positive for the magic gene and got sent to a specialist. I’ve been diagnosed for about six years and as far as I’m concerned I’ve had it at least ten years plus.

    It upsets me when l see youngsters like you with this disease as my one fear was that my sons did not get it.
    Thats why we must campaign and raise the profile of Ankylosing Spondylitis so that the next generation get early diagnosis and best treatments possible x
