John Clouatre

Hello, I wanted to add a face for you and share a little of my story with you to help bring more awareness to the world about this horrible, life stealing, excruciating painful disease. It took me 4 years, 9 drs, too many test and procedures to list or even count, job lost along with everything else (literally – home, cars, insurance, most of my family & friends and almost my life), accused of only being a drug seeking addict, told I was too young to have all these issues and that my tests didn’t show anything bad enough to cause the problems or pain to be as bad as I was making it out to be so it had to be just mostly in my head, all of this plus more before I could even get a diagnosis. Finally received my diagnosis from 1 blood test and about 10-12 questions by a rheumatologist, in less than 10mins!!! That is just the first & one part of my story, I am John Clouatre, age 47, living in the state of Georgia in the USA & have been living with AS for approximately 16-17 yrs now.

Georgia, United States of America
