Face 1032I was diagnosed with AS 2 years ago but have been living with it for 7 years as I was misdiagnosed with a “slipped disc”  I’ve had surgery, been on all types of medications, I’ve seen chiropractors, spinal activators, orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, physiotherapists, homeopaths, kinesiologists, just to name a few, I was just about to give when finally I saw a rheumatologist and he diagnosed me with AS at the age of 25, I’m now 27 been on methotrexate for 2 years and my life is starting to get back to normal. This disease can get you down but never give up hope,  beat the pain don’t let it beat you!
