Mother of Twins With AS
Since having my girls 13 yrs.ago I began to notice that my posture was getting bad and thinking that it was from holding and carring the girls in ’95′ I saw a dr. that immedentaly did testing for as and it was positive. since then I’ve had ‘iritis’ in my left eye 3 yrs. ago and just finished up with it again in the right eye(very painfu) Im doing excerises and stay active but have some problems swallowing im bent at the shoulders but i am holding off on heavy meds because I dont want to wreak my immune system.. I am not in bad pain but am uncomfortable and it looks bad any suggestions?
