61 Year Old Female with Ankylosing Spondylitis

I was diagnosed 2 years ago after suffering from a back ache. I take meds for it but they do not always help.

The pain goes from the middle of my back down my butt and the sides of my legs.

Sometimes I fall to the floor from the pain and lose the ability to stay on my feet.

A wonderful husband

I have several autoimmune illnesses that do not help. I have been suffering from different things for 18 years and it just gets worse.

I have a wonderful husband who helps me and picks up most of the housework. He is a veteran who served in desert storm and has TBI and PTSD.

He struggles himself but works hard to make sure I have what I need and am comfortable.
