A.S. Face 0540: Julie Jones

My name is Julie Jones, I have AS and been suffering from the age of 15 although I was told growing pains in the ball off my heel and my knees. Then when I was 30 I had a really big flare up everything hurt but having 3 small children I kept going, this was my first problem with iritis and the DR did the blood test this should have been the start of the help but no! The blood test vanished for 12 years, then my DR phoned me and asked me to attend the hospital that pm which he said my test was positive my ankle joint was so swollen I was pleased to be seeing him. He started to explain about AS I said I know what it is my father has it. This was my start of help 2002! And the rest is on our Facebook help group!!

Thanks for you work.

  3. Hi my name is Teresa, i’m from México city.
    I have AS and been suffering from the age of 26 the doctor of medical service told me it was a “esguince” but every day the symptom was higher until I could not walk more, correct diagnosis one year late, with yoga practice today I recovered and dance; weight training and take medicine only when it hurts, today I am 42 years old and I feel very healthy.
