Face 1606

I’m Clayton from Michigan. So I guess my story kind of begins like them all. I was 23 life was great I was in the middle of changing the direction of my career. I woke up one day feeling different. After seeing my GP a few times and him telling me I was fine I gave up looking for an answer. Fast forward a year and things were only getting worse. I wasn’t able to sleep because the pain was so bad and doing any kind of activity took a lot out of me. I found a new GP who was willing to listen to me. We spent the next few years going through trial and error to find something that would help me feel normal again. Unfortunately nothing seemed to help besides narcotics which I was against being on for a long period. My doctor suggested I start seeing a specialist. After my second visit with my rheumatologist I was officially diagnosed with AS, 4 years after my journey had started. It was quite a relief to know I wasn’t crazy but a whole new set of challenges are before me now. I started Humaira 2 months ago and I’m trying to stay positive that this could be the relief I’ve been praying about.
