My name is John I was Diagnosed with AS in August of this year. I am 44 now and been living with this disease for 16 years. Back in late 2003 I was in so much pain that I could not walk for over 3 months I had filed for BK and left my job after 17 years under tons of stress. I would go to my local County Hospital thinking that I might have cancer all the test came back normal. I must have been in the ER at least 7 times in a 3 mouth period the staff in the ER was tired of seeing me and they thought I was a drug addict trying to get Pain killers. Well when I got medical from my spouses work then I got answers. If only one person reads this and finds out that they have AS that would be the greatest thing ever.
