Hi, my name is Carson and I am 20 years old. I was diagnosed with AS around the age of 13, having inexplicable pains in my knees and ankles. I’m now 20 and the pain from my knees/ankles has moved more towards my back, but my medication helps make me (nearly) pain-free. I am now in college at the University of Arkansas. I play club soccer for my school, and I am (extremely) addicted to running & working out. My brother has also recently gotten me into backpacking and hiking (the picture of me is on top of Mount Elbert in Colorado), which has quickly become one of my favorite things to do. My goal is to stay as physically active as possible to try to minimize the effects of living with AS, and so far it’s going great.
