A.S. Face 1522: Julie Lawton

Face 1522

I had chronic back pain for 8 years. I paid to see a specialist who told me the pain was all in my head. This made me very depressed but i fought on. After a while a radiographer found inflammation on my SI joint i had blood tests and was sent to a Rheumatologist who said”how long have you had Ankylosing Spondylitis for” I replied Anky what?? he then threw a leaflet on the desk and said read this it’ll explain what you’ve got. After years of anti inflammatory drugs which didn’t work im finally on Enbrel although the AS has spread now to knee toes and hand.
