Hi, I’m a new member and haven’t joined anything like this before so not really sure how it all works. I live in Devon and have been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis for about 4 years now but have suffered for a lot longer. Hoping to be able to find people to chat to.

thanks! 🙂

    Hi @Nads0469

    For a first posts to an online community you have done really well!

    You have definitely found the right place to come and chat to people who have arthritis. I see you have Ankylosing Spondylitis, which is not the most common type, but this is a very supportive community and everyone here can relate to pain.

    While you wait for some of our members to come along and say hello I will attach a couple of links. The first is on Ankylosing Spondylitis itself might be useful to read even though you were diagnosed 4 years ago: Ankylosing spondylitis | Symptoms, causes, treatments (versusarthritis.org)

    This one is a previous thread which includes a video by a man who has the condition: Week Ending 11th September — Versus Arthritis

    Best wishes and I look forward to seeing your posts.
