I was just diagnosed with HS this morning.....I'm 25 and have had abscesses or cyst like bumps under my arm off and on for years.....I always thought they were just razor bumps, until they got worse and I saw a doctor.
I'm just really afraid.....and I can't find much info regarding my questions and I won't be able to see a specialist until October, but I have an appointment with a surgeon this upcoming week.
Does HS worsen as you age?
Will my flare ups become worse and more severe?
Are the 3 stages of HS if gone untreated or the progression as you age?
Does anyone have major issues with mobility, and/or does anyone have a service dog?
I'm finishing my PhD and starting veterinary medical school next year, so I'm heartbroken and terrified what this means for my career and quality of life.

I think it's different for everyone. I went untreated and undiagnosed for years and it worsened. I was almost immobile. Once I saw the correct doctor and was properly treated things have improved. Get on it. If you need I can give you doctor's name.
