Shalanda White

face-1674

My name is Shalanda White and I was diagnosed with AS last month. Before my diagnosis, I was suffering from severe lower back and hip pain. This May on my 37th birthday I woke up and could hardly get out of bed. After being referred to a rheumatologist I was told that I tested positive for the HLA-B27 gene. I feel alone with this disease because I don’t see anyone else that looks like me.
