A.S. Face 1931: Holly

My name is Holly and I am 44 years old. I have struggled with AS since I was 8 years old, though I wasn’t diagnosed until I was 28.  At 8 years old I battled neck issues, at 15 back issues began that were misdiagnosed for a basketball injury, followed by bursitis in my foot at 17, and then the dreaded uveitis at 19. I battled uveitis for years until I was finally put on a biologic at 30.  Getting the official diagnosis was such a relief , because I knew all those years this wasn’t how I was supposed to feel. I’m more active now since I know more about my disease and how to respond when I have a flare.
