I just been diagnosed with Ankylosing spondylitis. I have been suffering with back pain now for over 7 years. I have developed other problems every year. I now have chronic kidney stone disease, chrones, chronic broncos, and a few other things. I have dealt with pain and sickness almost my whole life. I am now 22. I am happy to finally know what was wrong but I am scared and worried about my future. I need help understanding things so I can relax. If there is anyone out there who can help it would be greatly appreciated. I will wait. Thank you for reading my post and for your help.
