My name is Jamie Smith I have just been diagnosed with A.S but I have had problems since my early twenties I am now 42 . I have had back problems forever which has always been attributed to weight . Knee and ankle issues which again have been attributed to weight . It wasn’t until I started complaining to my family doctor of extreme pain and fatigue that he sent me for bone scans , mri’s , X-rays and blood test and to a rheumatologist and a sleep clinic . Found out I have severe sleep apnea . I have been on a cpap , vpap was Hoping that would help and it has with tiredness but now I’m awake for the pain lol Awesome ! Lol Rheumy has decided that I am going to go on Humira just waiting for one more MRI .
Thanks for listening.
