Aggravated AS Story
I was 50 years old when diagnosed. I am and have always been very active with my family and in my community. I was also fired from my job of 20 years. I had missed so much work. The combination of my misdiagnoses over the years, many, many meds and other genetic disorders found, I was really sick. I retired via medical disability, got my Social Security in 6 months (had tons of medical records) and know what I have to deal with. All the pain I have had all my life is logical. It is genetic. It is human. I can control what I can control. That is it.
Other than back pain and fatigue, what is the most common symptom that AS patients experience?
