I’m Tina, 29 years old and from Denmark.
I was diagnosed with AS in 2007 after 4 years of pain. I am HLAB27 positive. In the beginning the doctors didn’t believe in me, when I told them I was in pain, and I was send home many times without any help. I knew something was wrong (I felt the PAIN!!!) and didn’t give up the struggle to find out, what was costing me this bad pain. After 4 years the answer was AS.
Luckily Enbrel is working for me now, so I can live a normal life without to much pain – though it’s still there. I try to find all the positive things in life and appreciate them, that keeps me positive, and as long as I’m positive, I don’t give up the fight against AS.
Love to you all from Denmark
