Iv been having tests at the hospital and I’ve been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis disease witch causes inflammation of the spine unfortunately because it hasn’t been picked up for so long there isn’t a cure but I have been put on a course of steroid injections to try and help with the pain and other symptoms  unfortunately my gp didn’t pick it up it was the doctor in rheumatology that told me and even the student present in the room new I had it as well  

Went to the hospital  to see the physiotherapist  and got to look at my X-rays and wow from the top of my spine to the shoulder blades my vertebrae  are fused  together  and I’ve got problems with my hip joints that’s been there for a long time.
