Hello! My name is Ann and I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis aged 37 after the birth of my son.  I was symptom-free before childbirth then I experienced an aggressive onset in the first year of my son’s life.  I had a fit lifestyle as a sports therapist and snowboard instructor in the past and I couldn’t understand why I was so ill and in constant pain after having a baby.  It took about a year to get diagnosed after I changed GP and I fought against comments that my problems were just ‘post-natal’.
I am on a continual search for information about this condition and ways to manage it effectively.
Love and Victories to you all!
