I am 21 years old and I was diagnosed feb of this year. It has taken 5 years to get a proper diagnosis . My consultant for 5 years originally thought it was my knee and did an unnecessary operation , then for 3 years after told me my back pain was over compensation for my knee . Now finally I’m getting the right treatment unfortunately they have had to hit me hard with treatment which caused a heart problem and I had a heart operation a month ago . I am now on Anti TNF and hoping this treatment works.
