A.S. Face 0654: Ashley Johnstone
My name is Ashley Johnstone. I’m in Frankfort, KY.
For a few years, I had lower back pain and sciatic nerve pain. For about 8 years, some of these years during the back pain, I had chronic iritis about once a year. Finally, a doctor made the connection that it could be related to something else, and had me go to an eye specialist. The eye specialist did blood work, X-Ray, and MRI which all concluded that I had A.S. The diagnosis was in September or October 2007. I was then put on Enbrel. I’m 36 now. As long as I use Enbrel, I have very little pain from A.S. I’m excited to find as many websites as I can devoted to A.S., so that I can read about other patients’ experiences.
