I was 21 when i first began getting backache and neck pain, went to the doctors and always got told it was a posture problem, exercise more, sit correctly ect. Ive suffered so much pain and discomfort, lost jobs, got depressed, the pain, stiffness got worse, i just did not know what way to turn or who to turn to. Everything i could have done i done to help myself, lost all my faith in the GPs at my local surgery. The last GP i went to see was a locum at my surgery, i was in agony, terrible pain, asked her if she would send me to the hospital for an xray on my neck/back because i knew there was something not right, she agreed to send me after telling me i was waisting her time, hospital time and my own time. Anyway results came back telling me i had posterior cervcal fusion, advanced sacrolitis, fuced facet joints, looks like i need to have a double hip replacement and the diagnosis is that i have advanced severe ankylosing spondylitis. Why ive posted this is because i dont want anyone else to have to suffer the way i have, we all know our own bodies better than anyone, keep pushing your doctor to get results, dont waste 20+ years of your life in pain and suffering.
