Face 1280

Denise: New Jersey

My name is Denise. I’m 39 years old.. married with four amazing step sons. I was diagnosed with AS..degenerative arthritis in every joint and lower lumber strain. This was diagnosed about 6 years ago after about ten bouts of iritis and severe spine pain. I had to have a partial shoulder replacement at 35. i  currently on remicade infusions every six weeks…oxycotyn..oxymorpone..Opana ER and Flerxeral ER. I get monthly lidacane injections in my back and bi lateral si joint injections. Life was very hard at first. I wont lie. The meds to help me a lot but like everyone with AS i have my good and bad days. I know its something i will live with forever and took me a long time to get over that. I still deal with the why me days. Just wanted to share my story. Thank you for taking the time to listen to my story.
