Face 1076

Hi, i am 28 and just been diagnosed at same time of having my beautiful daughter Poppy, i had been getting pains etc for about 6 years and this year i have deteriated so bad to the point i am unable to work now. I wake up every night at 4am and unable to get back to sleep for the pain in my back neck and shoulders and hip/pelvis and my eyes, i walk with a limp and need a stick or wheelchair which i am in process of sorting out. I used to play football for blyth spartans and cycle 32 mile a day to work, i now cant walk any further than the front garden without pain. My mam was diagnosed at 22 and she suffers bad also, I am going to become a spokesperson for AS in my area as the frustrating part is nobody undertstands at all what we are going through. my kidney is failing through the AS as my blood pressure is so high my kideny does not filter fast enough for the blood flowing through it. So i cant take anti inflams i can only take steroids. I now have enough strength to do small activities with my daughter now that i have quit work, we have little money but moments with my family are worth everything
