I am a 67 year old man who, other than my AS, is in perfect health!
I suffered from a skiing accident for 50 years. Regardless of the sessions of traction, the drugs, the homeopathic remedies that I tried, I suffered horrible lower back pain. In 2000, as my late wife was seeing her back surgeon, we told him about my symptoms. He asked if I had ever been tested for AS. We told him no and we quickly had the BLA-27 test. It turned out that I positive with the gene, and subsequent testing placed the time of its outset at 1996. I was 51 at the time of outset.
I began treatment at that time and I am now infusing four vials of Remicade, once every two months. I am health as a horse, 23.1 BMI, and I take my medications as prescribed, accompanied by appropriate exercise.
