My name is Alisha Fish and I was diagnosed with As September of 2013. It took nearly a year of going to doctors to find out what was wrong. It started out by my big toe swelling extremely large. Then one day I woke up and my thumb was swollen. Then a few weeks later I could barely get out of bed. The pain in my back was so excruciating. It took 3 x-rays, 2 MR I’s and 21 blood tests later to get diagnosed. I did test positive for the HLA-B27.
