A.S. Face 1559: Joyce Uhilch

Face 1559

I have an overlap of autoimmune diseases; the worst of which are AS, Lupus and RA. I have been dealing with these diseases for 60 years. I am now a great grandmother and very thankful for the health care that has helped me be here to enjoy this time of my life.
I have had many surgeries beginning at age 19 on my elbow for RA. The neurosurgeons say I cannot have another spine surgery unless paralysis becomes a problem. My spine is very fragile and I have developed 3 curvatures. I do not know what it would be like to not hurt.
