A.S. Face 2158: Casey Morrison

My name is Casey Morrison and I have ankylosing spondylitis. I am 45 and live in Toledo, Ohio. I suffered 17 years before finally getting the diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis last year, but by then my s.i. joints and my neck were already fused. I have very limited movement in my entire spine and my neck is hunched forward. My first diagnosis was fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. After that was degenerative disc disease and bone spurs. I had fusion in the facet joints of my neck as early as 2013 but none of my many doctors ever mentioned A.S. I have many, many symptoms (too many to list) and other diagnoses as well.

In the side picture I am trying my hardest to look up at the ceiling, so you can see how forward my neck is.
