A.S. Face 0607: Hayley

Hi there my name is Hayley and I live in Whitstable in England.  I was officially diagnosed with AS about 2 years ago after about 10 years of living with severe pain in my sacroiliac joints.  I am now 33 and have started methotrexate which seems to be helping a great deal….I also find that taking up karate has really helped to improve my flexibility.  Ive suffered from Iritis several times which I dread getting, but recently I have been very lucky and seem to be having a good run without any major flare ups….just dreading the next ones.  Its great to hear peoples stories because I think people who do not suffer from this disease can find it difficult to understand the daily ups and downs….keep smiling xx

  1. Dear Hayley,
    Thank you so much for sharing your story with us.
    Sincerely Cookie

  2. Hi Hayley, I am the same age as you and it also took me years to get diagnosed, I am in the UK too. Have you seen the NASS site? Worth a look.

    Best Wishes Eve (518)
