My name is Stacy from Pennsylvania. It has been over 5 years that I have been dealing with issues consisting of severe pain affecting all joints, stiffness in my back, neck and wrists, numbness and tingling from my waist down. Over the past 2 months I have developed gastroparesis, severe headaches and optic neuritis. After all of these years in and out of doctors offices, ER visits, etc, I was finally diagnosed with an autoimmune disease with 3 different components. 1) Ankylosing Spondylitis 2) Reactive arthritis and 3) I have progressed to now having a neurological component which isn’t explained by the previous 2. Now we wait for more of a workup to get more answers and start treatment in hopes to start feeling better!
