A.S. Face 1812: Kristin

Face 1812

My name is Kristin. I am from central Iowa. I have been to 5 specialists…rheumatoid doctors. I finally was hurting to bad I wanted my doctor to set up an app at Mayo Clinic in Mn. I was finally diagnosed with AS as well as some degenerative disks and arthritis every where. I have 6 kids (two sets of twins) I also have high blood pressure and high liver enzymes. She wants me to start on a pill starts with sulfa something. My anxiety has been bad. I’ve been up …I’ve been down. Hearing others stories is great. I did get 4 back injections as I was in so much pain i couldn’t walk.

Feel free to ask any questions.

Iowa, United States of America
