A.S. Face 1422: Heidi Barnes
Im a 53 year old female , with AS . Ive always had low back pain and was very lethargic in my teens years . Years of going to the doctor with no results . I had occular orbatil edema , low back pain left wrist , and achillis tendon pains .
I got a diagnosis in 2008 from a rhumy. I have had an episode of optic neuritis in my left eye was blind for almost 6 weeks . Vision came back but i dont get much light in that eye .
Increased pain . Lortab in day , demerol and baclophen at night .
Going to arthritis Doctor soon for a check up possible methtrexate .:(
Thank you all for your stories .I hope to meet some one with AS in person some day . Keep on the positive side . I pray a lot ..
