Mia Penning

Face 2126

My name is Mia Penning. I’m 39 years old and been diagnosed with AS 2 years ago. I started having symptoms in my early 20’s. I went from doctor to doctor trying to figure out whats wrong with me and them giving me all different meds that didn’t help and some that caused side effects. Finally, a rheumatologist took the proper imaging and blood test including the HLA B27 test, which I’m positive and put it all together. Today, I’m on the right kind of meds, feeling better. I still have bad flare days but not like before my diagnoses.
