Hi my name is Jason i was diagnosed with AS at age 6 at the time i was taking various types of anti inflammatory drugs, during my preteen years life with AS was normal no real pain until i hit my mid teens. Growing up with this debilitating disease in my late teens to now at age 35 has been a struggle but i never let it get me down and i overcame the pain long ago. Mind over matter is a must for me and i have friends and family that helped me get though the struggle. Luckyly only 2 vertebrae froze in my back after all this time and the new break though drugs Enbrel and now Remicade has helped me with the pain.
Remember never let this disease get you down life is to short to mope around.
