Juanita Vela Jung

My name is Juanita and my son is Nico. We both have AS. I Juanita Vela Jung 36, have been officially diagnosed for just over 5 years. I however have had the symptoms for several additional years in which I was misdiagnosed by several specialist. I was told had I not been misdiagnosed for so many years I would probably not be on the most aggressive medication today for AS.  In additional to AS I also have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. I am currently on Orencia infusions and Methotrexate. I take several pills daily which i really want to get off all together.  I am so thankful to have a group of people who truly understand. Thank you.
