Dragon slayer and the rest of the people who run & look after this site you all need statues raised on your behalf and immortalised forever!!!!!
This place is a true lifesaver and sanity preserver and the later leads to saving lives...
The strength, love, compassion and understanding within the site is truly awesome.
The depth of knowledge and experience and the willingness to share is truly helpfull.
You have given me strength and knowledge I am not alone..
You have given my wife the strength to know she isn't the only one out there fighting alongside an AS sufferer. I can only hope to give some minuscule value back compared to what I have received.

Thank you all on so many levels..
Julian

Julian,

I whole-heartedly agree with your sentiments. This site has been a fantastic help. Thanks to all those who manage it.


AS symptoms started 1991. Official dx in 2006 with HLA-B27+, fused SIJ, bone spurs in back, extreme rib/hip pain, and other family with SpA. Started Enbrel in 2006 with good results, but stopped in 2010 due to nerve damage (MS) from it. Getting good results with no-starch diet since 2011.

I will fourth that sentiment! Thank you all very much!


Iritis first diagnosed in 1991, presently recurrent and steroid resistant.
Tested HLA B27 positive in 1996.
AS diagnosed October of 2011.

Putting most of my eggs in the NSD and exercise basket, using only TENS, massage, heat and ice, and NSAIDS (sparingly) for pain. Drops for iritis as flare necessitates. Looking back I feel I would have been diagnosed with AS years ago, if I had found a rheumy earlier than 2011.

Indeedy! Hats off to all involved.

It's such "comfort" to have a read/browse of the site after a long (and at the moment, stiff) workday.

Many thanks!
