A.S. Face 0849: Nicky
Hi My Name is Nicky,I’m 46, I and both my sons have AS, I also have Scheuermans Disease of my spine. Recently I have been diagnosed with Avascular Necrosis of my Jaw joints. I have other health conditions affecting my lungs, thyroid, hearing and suffer with Tinnitus and have been medically retired from my profession as a Staff Nurse. My youngest son was diagnosed aged 12 with AS and my eldest son was diagnosed in 2005 and also has the Hyperflexamobility. We work together as a family and each day is a struggle. Despite this we laugh most days and live our lives with half full glasses, trying to turn most negatives into positives. AS has had a huge impact on our world but we wont let it hold us down.
