Hi All,

Just thought i'd say hello to everyone. I have just post a thread on the "Living with arthritis" section about 'my story so far'. As mentioned above, I haven't actually been diagnosed with anything specific yet but the rheumy thinks it's anklosing spondilitis and I think it's reactive arthritis... but after a year i'm still no further forward!!!

Hopefully speak to some of you soon!

    Hi Rob

    Your story sounds very much the same as mine.
    I am also 27years old and a year ago very fit and very healthy. I ran two half marathons last year and played alot of sports.
    I now get pain in all of my joints in my body when I was looking on the net for answers I also thought I may have reactive arthritis or maybe fibromyalgia.
    I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis about a month ago now.
    I have never really had much psoriasis but have just started to get more on my scalp.
    Has anyone in your family got psoriasis?
    Just a thought because like I said your story does sound very much like mine.
    Hope you get it sorted soon whatever it is.

    hi rob, i know exactly how you feel, ive just recently been diagnosed with cervical spondilitis, but hace suffered for years with one pain and another, it makes it a little easier to live with when you know what you are dealing with believe me, ive bought a tens machine to help with the pain, and it works great, hopefully you will be diagnosed soon, and then yoiu can get on with manging the pain, there are lots of ways with that, hopefully i helped alittle, love tracey x
