A.S. Face 0779: Marie
My name is Marie. I was diagnosed with MS when I was only 16 years old. I did ok for a while, had a flare up only every couple of years or so. That changed drastically about a year ago when I had a flare up and never fully recovered from it and had many since then. Of course, of the years there were several physicians who said that it was not possible for me to have AS because I’m a female. Others saw the x-rays and blood work and agreed. I’ve never been on any meds besides NSAIDS and some steroids. I’m allergic to narcotics. I gave up my nursing career and currently work a minimum wage job from home. I also suffer from degenerative disc disease, so what helps with my AS pain triggers my DDD pain and the other way. I’m not giving up yet though. I’m about to have a surgery for DDD and once I heal I will hopefully get on some TNF blockers and get better. I’m only 34 years old Wish me luck.
