Jacob Kuhn

Face 855My name is Jacob Kuhn, I’m 26 years old and I have AS. I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis when I was 10 years old. I started noticing my back hurting more and my neck being very stiff, I was diagnosed with AS when I was 15. I was also diagnosed with crohn’s disease. I’m currently on Remicade infusions every 4 weeks, it seems to help for the most part. I still have my bad days, but that’s expected with AS. I had a very bad flare up a few years ago and I am currently on social security disability because of it. I’ve lost almost all movement in my neck and I’m hunched over due to AS. thankfully I have very supportive family and friends, they have been there for me through everything. People always ask me how I do it, how do I handle this disease. I always smile and tell them, it could be worse….
