Ronda Aldridge

Face 948About 3 yes ago I was diagnosed with AS. I am a 46 yr old registered nurse in stat lake upstate NY located in the adirondack mountains. One day I woke up with red itchy eyes and a day later could hardly see between the light sensitivity and floaters along with blurred vision. I was sent to the eye doctors and diagnosed with uveitis. A few weeks later after going through tons of blood work and testing, I could barely get out of bed. Every joint in my body hurt. I was sent to a rheumatologist who diagnosed me with reactive arthritis and AS. I have been on humira and methotrexate with very little control over the pain. My low back and hips hurt so bad I had to take short term disability until they get it under control. I now look at chronic pain in a different light.
