A.S. Face 0985: Gillian

Face 985My name is Gillian, I’m 43, married with two fantastic children and from Yorkshire. I was diagnosed with AS last year but have been suffering from symptoms since I was 18 and have had numerous operations that weren’t necessary such as carpal tunnel and knee ops before I finally had the biggest flare up and the Drs found that I was HLA B27 +. I have now got a really good Rheumatology clinic in Doncaster and I’m now on Enbrel after not being able to tolerate sulphasalzine or methotrexate.
I’m now back at work full time and although I hurt every day I can get on with life and enjoy it. Thank you for listening.

  2. Hi Gillian,

    Good to hear your story.
    I often wonder if there is no other people in my area, I too live in Yorkshire.
    How long have you been on you new meds? It’s a shame you still have pain.
    Have tried any alternative treatments or supplementation protocols before?
    It be nice to chat some time to find out how you get on and what you do.

    All the best
