Eileen Rothmann

I have AS – symptoms started in my early teens with painful knees, a few years later my shoulders and hips also started to hurt. In my early 20s the back pain started. No doctor could tell me what was wrong and I started to believe people who told me I was a hypochondriac. When I was 31 a physiotherapist referred me to a rheumy and I was finally diagnosed. I am on Salazopyrin and my AS seems to be under control. I try not to let it interfere with my life.
