Jessica Dyakanoff

I am 31 years old and was Diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis and Fibromyalgia when I was 28. It took a long time to get that diagnoses the Drs told me it was all in my head from about the time of 14 years old. I found a wonderful Dr in Denver, Colorado who has me on Remicade and it has changed my life completely. I have lost 55 pounds and have my life back! I still have my rough days but for the most part its good and for now I am thankful that this med is working for me cause for so many of us it don’t.  I have a wonderful family and I am enjoying the little things in life and I am not going to let Ankylosing Spondylitis stop me!

  3. Dear Jessica,
    One of the things that Ankylosing Spondylitis has given me, is a new appreciation for life, simple things, family and friends. I concentrate on the positive things in my life, because those are the true gifts, that make my life worth living. Wishing you the best.
    Sincerely Cookie

  4. Awesome! Remicade is working for me as well….I love it and look forward to my infusions every 6 weeks like Christmas… Enjoy your new lease on life!

  5. Sounds exactly like me. I am 35 and was diagnosed with both quite recently. It is tough to get through some days but I hope it gets better!
