Hi there my name is Hayley and I live in Whitstable in England.  I was officially diagnosed with AS about 2 years ago after about 10 years of living with severe pain in my sacroiliac joints.  I am now 33 and have started methotrexate which seems to be helping a great deal….I also find that taking up karate has really helped to improve my flexibility.  Ive suffered from Iritis several times which I dread getting, but recently I have been very lucky and seem to be having a good run without any major flare ups….just dreading the next ones.  Its great to hear peoples stories because I think people who do not suffer from this disease can find it difficult to understand the daily ups and downs….keep smiling xx
