Beginning My Journey with Ankylosing Spondylitis and Chronic Pain

I am a 60-year-old man. I have been looking for answers to all the pain I have been having for the last 2 years.

My rheumatologist who I have met with 3 times prior has finally given me a diagnosis of Ankylosing Spondylitis.

She has increased my Naproxin medication to help with the pain. I am still trying to maintain a maintenance job, but it gets more and more difficult.

My journey of chronic pain is beginning. Not looking forward to this.
