    Hi everyone not been on for a while it’s been one hell of a journey with chronic back pain 13 years to be precise I have got my diagnosis it’s A S ankylosing spondylitis it was a total shock at first but a massive relief to no I wasn’t going mad and this week I’m starting biological therapy so fingers crossed it works.

    Hi mouse81

    13 years is a long time to wait, and it’s quite understandable that you have mixed feelings about your diagnosis.
    Keeping fingers crossed that the new therapy will be helpful for you.

    Take care

    Hi Mouse – oh wow, so glad you got a diagnosis after all that time, bless you, and here’s wishing you all the very best with your therapy. If you don’t mind me asking – what is biological therapy? Sorry I’m always interested in alternative treatments.
    I really hope it help makes a difference – take care & best wishes AnnieD
