Hi, my name is Alison Hutton. I’m 47 and live in Beerwah Australia, home of Australia Zoo. I’ve always known there was something not quite right with my body but doctors could never find anything. A few months ago I finally found a doctor who took me seriously and discovered I have haemachromatosis and ankylosing spondylitis. So happy to be able to put a name to all the symptoms. While searching for information I found Faces and joined the page on Facebook. It’s great to have other people with AS to talk to and learn from.
