Tracy-Anne Ganzer

Hi everyone I have been diagnosed with AS for about 12 years.  I was relieved at the time of diagnosis because I finally had a name for all of the strange and persistent symptoms that I had been experiencing my whole life.  It was not just “all in my head” as some doctors seem to say if they can’t figure out what’s wrong with you!  I have to thank my local GP at the time.  He had just taken over the practice and as soon as I walked in for my first visit, he took one look at my penguin waddle and sent me for tests.  Over the last 10 years I have been a little complacent as my condition settled down only rearing it’s ugly head for short bursts that resolved fairly quickly.  However in the last 12 months I have started experiencing some complications that at first didn’t realise were related to AS (in my defence no health professional realised it either…) so I am now taking charge of my health again.  First line of defence is changing my diet to be a lot healthier and demanding action from the health fraternity.  I have my first rheumy appointment for a long time next week so wish me luck and if anyone has some advice and which questions I “MUST” ask please feel free to share
