A.S. Face 2080: Amanda Robert

Face 2080

My name is Amanda Robert. I’m a 32-year-old mother. I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis a few months ago. I started realizing something was terribly wrong towards the end of my pregnancy with my 2 ND child. I was told it was normal to not be able to move my legs and not be able to get up because I had just had a child. I suffered the first year and a half. Then finally I got answers confirmed by MRI of my SI joints and blood work. My rheumatologist says the antigen got switched on during my second pregnancy.  So here I am. It’s a struggle. The everyday pain does get depressing but I have my beautiful wife and daughters to keep me going.
