My AS started when I was 17, but wasn’t diagnosed with it until 2004. I was a school bus driver and when I went for my physical the doctor asked how long I have had the hump at my shoulders. She gave me information on AS and recommended I see an arthritis doctor.
I had my first visit to a clinic in December of 2004. The doctor is saw did all kinds of testing and on my second visit she told me that I had the worst case of AS she had ever seen in a woman.
