Peter Bautista


Hi everyone! I’m peter 26 years old and I got my diagnosis of AS about a month ago. I have been having symptoms of back pains for about 6 years before I was diagnosed. In 2014, I got severe back pains and PTs and medications can do nothing and it turns to an operation. Fast forward to 2016, I still had back pains and stiffness throughout the years. I went back to my Ortho and tell about what happening to my body. He ordered the HLA-B27 test and other blood tests. After getting the results he referred me to a rheumatologist. I had the HLA-B27 test, blood works, x-rays and MRIs. I was finally diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. The damage is now seen on x-rays but not fused yet. Through people who surrounds me, understanding and accepting for what condition I have, I am hoping and trying to stay positive about my future. I will do my best i can to live a normal life. #GodwillKickmyASoff #autoimmune #ASawareness
