Terrible Pain from Ankylosing Spondylitis
I am a 51 yr old female. My whole life has been turned upside from this!
Not only do I suffer regularly and stay depressed but I lost my career, have become somewhat of a “hermit”, and most doctors are clueless of what this disease does 😭
This along with a benign inoperable meningioma and fibromyalgia have me on a heat pad recliner or sofa (if not bedridden) daily.
Ankylosing spondylitis changed me
I never thought me, the country girl, would be like this.
I loved to hunt, fish, camp, ride ATV's and horses...anything outdoors with my family.
I can no longer enjoy these things and I feel as if I let my family especially my grandchildren down when I cannot run and play with them.
I had 3 children naturally and the pain I am going through makes that seem like a cakewalk.
I wouldn’t wish it on anyone 😭😭😭
Other than back pain and fatigue, what is the most common symptom that AS patients experience?
