Hi I'm a woman with ankolysing spondylitis took 15 years to diagnose and I've had a awful time getting there . I have disc prolapse l234 and ls1 problems with my pelvis and hips plus sciatica . There are times over the past fifteen years when I thought I was mad as I had no inflammitory markers but the inflammation was evident . I've had so many procedures on the nerves of my lower back my bum feels like I've sat in nettles . I have to say I had a fantastic rheumatologist who didn't give up on me . I have been on humeria since February 2017 and feel fantastic . I would love to speak to others who have this poxy thing . I can't believe I've had this since early twenties and it reared its head when I was turning forty . My only concern is my children may have inherited the gene praying they haven't. I have found there seems to be very little information on this condition and not many people who have it who you can support or be supported by . I hope to increase my knowledge on this and hope I can encourage others.
