My name is Kathryn Comartin and I was diagnosed with AS 4 months ago. I am currently on Humira and have my good days and bad. I started out with a pain in my left hip so my doctor sent me for a ton of tests including a colonoscopy, go figure. For the last 2 years I have gone for x-rays, MRI’s, bone scans, cortisone injections, blood tests with still no definite diagnosis. After spending a night of excruciating pain in the hospital, my rheumy finally decided to put me on Humira which has been a life saver and diagnosed me with AS. I still get pain but not as severely and I’m starting to live my life again. I also have another autoimmune condition called alopecia, so every hair on my body fell out when I was 18. I have an extremely supportive family and my husband keeps me going.
