I’m Phyllis from Richmond, VT. I’m a 59-year-old wife, mother & grandmother. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in my early 30’s and just recently diagnosed with AS (in November) after x-rays showed that my left SI joint was totally fused, my right SI joint partially fused, and there are signs of ankylosis on my sacrum and L5. (I’m one of the quirky ones who doesn’t have the HLBA27 gene and my blood work consistently comes back negative). Still learning to deal with the diagnosis and its ramifications.
