Gary Kriedt

Hi, I’m Gary Kriedt, Seattle, Washington.  I’ve had AS for at least 32 years and I have fused sacroiliac joints.  I have constant, fairly intense spine/neck pain and stiffness when I don’t take medication.  With a TNF inhibitor and an over-the-counter NSAID, I still get some pain/stiffness, iritis, neuropathy, and other AS symptoms, but the meds help a lot (especially the TNF inhibitor).  You have to keep moving, eat a healthy diet, keep moving, exercise, meditate/relax, keep moving, stay positive, and stretch a lot/keep moving!  I really sympathize with my fellow AS people and I know some of you have had a harder time.  Hang in there and take care!
