Hello,My name is Arne.

I got AS in 1991 when i was 21.It took almost 8 years to be diagnosed and prescribed Napraxon.

Most of the pain was in the spine and left hip.My left thigh muscle was wasting away and there were times it hurt to much to walk.It also hurt real bad if i sneezed or laughed or even if some one touched me.

The good news is for the last few years I’ve been feeling so much better.Gaining strength,standing straighter and doing so many things that i once thought i’d never do again.

It is my hope that this story will bring some hope to a fellow AS sufferer.Maybe some times the pain does go away.

One thing that bothers me is this super long time most of us wait to get diagnosed.I can’t see any reason why this has to be.
