Michelle Austin

Face 1355My name is Michelle Austin, I am twenty eight, and I am from Ohio. My father and I both have Ankylosing Spondylitis. When I was fourteen I had gotten iritis but, was not diagnosed with A.S. I didn’t really start having joint problems till I was nineteen. My fiance had just passed away and I was all on my own. It had got so bad I went to the hospital and they finally diagnosed me. My rheumatologist got me on Remicade. Even though this helped I was still unable to work. I was taken off remicade and put on Indocin. Indocin does work for me most days. It has given me a couple of ulcers though. Hopefully one day there is cure!
