A.S. Face 2081: Zannie Psimer

Face 2081

My name is Zannie Psimer and I have Ankylosing Spondylitis.
I was diagnosed in 2013 and suffered a heart attack in 2016 due to inflammation my Rheumatologist couldn’t control.
I’m doing better for now on a couple biologics in addition to the lifelong chemo.
I also have Fibromyalgia, Adrenal Fatigue, IBD, and other conditions.

I battle for a meaningful life every day.

  1. Dear Zannie,
    Thank you so much for sharing your story with us.
    Sincerely Cookie

  2. Welcome Zannie! Interesting re your heart attack. I had a heart attack in 2003 at the age of 45 after diagnosed with AS in 1990. I usually blame every ache and pain on AS but it never occured to me that it could have something to do with my heart attack!! I am going to research that. Thanks for sharing!

    • I was told my inflammation was directly responsible for my heart attack. My cardiologist told me it’s not uncommon!
      I pay a lot more attention to my inflammation markers now!
      Good luck to you.
