Hi, I am 52 and have had AS since I was 27. Like so many others I was not diaqnosed until a bout of Iritis 11 years later and an optician informed me of my plight! I found this website only 2 weeks ago and find it an absolute fantastic source of inspiration. I came looking for help as I have been able to endure the years of back/hip pain but now its at my neck..well you know. I immediately tried the apples diet for 3 days and it
and my flare up just dissapeared. I am now a week into the NSD and am starting to feel so much better. I didnt think I could exist without my bread, potatoes and especially rice when eating a lovely curry but I have and will not give in. Early days yet but thankyou so much to everyone who has posted their success stories. Hopefully one more to add to the list.
