Amanda Low

 

Face 1049 My name is Amanda Low and My story is pretty short. My AS began with knee pain back in may of 2013. I saw my family dr time and time again for what I thought was a torn meniscus, after a perfect X-ray and minimal issues on my MRI  I was referred to my rheumatologist and he diagnosed me with AS. I was distraught. Confused, why me? My mom and I called my aunt to talk because she too has an autoimmune disease and it turns out that my aunt, my grandpa and great grandma all have AS! Crazy as it seems I now know why me. My mom has been battling chronic back pain for 10+ years and through my diagnosis she was able to be correctly diagnosed with AS as well. Taking life one day at a time and hoping for a cure! 🙂
