Trying Different Treatments for Ankylosing Spondylitis
Life was good for almost two years. Then I woke up one day to toe to nose psoriasis, pus pockets, and splitting skin.
Then, I started Cosentyx.
It cleared my skin but nothing for my AS in my back and hips.

I have learned to enjoy the early morning quiet and peaceful songs of birds.
I try to push my boundaries because I can't sit and do nothing.

Family won't understand no matter how hard you try explaining, and my friends won't be coming around since I am of no value to anyone any longer.
So, first, you have to own your disease and come to terms with it, then hope every day just to get by.
Other than back pain and fatigue, what is the most common symptom that AS patients experience?
