Newly diagnosed with AS
When I was about 15 years old I went to an orthopedic doctor who told me that when I reach 35 years old I'll end up in a wheelchair.
I was so angry about the thing he said to me and left crying to see another doctor who told me basically that the first doctor lied to me.
I had back pain almost every day but I thought it was because of my job as a waitress until I gave birth to my daughter.
Pain worse after giving birth
After the birth, my symptoms got so much worse that I struggled a lot even walking and the pain wasn't only on my back, it was almost everywhere.
Relieved at first
At first, I was relieved because I finally found out why am I in such pain, but now it's starting to get to me.
The only thing I want is to be able to lift my daughter up and play with her, to care for her.
It's my first week on Humira and a long journey.
I'm sorry for the long post hope I didn't bored you.
Other than back pain and fatigue, what is the most common symptom that AS patients experience?
