Well this is officially my first support group! I am 36 year old mother of two and have had horrible back pain for the last year...on and off. I noticed the beginning of the summer it was quite significant pain. So I did probably what most of you did...saw a chiropractor whom in which threw me into horrible pain. So, I went to a back specialist who thought by examining once that I had a connective tissue disorder. Well, I thought no way but go ahead and take my blood! Two weeks later and in more pain, was called and told I had AS. I asked for something for pain, was given two different NSAIDS that tore up my stomach. I felt like I was breathing fire, and was still in pain. Was given Celebrex today and so far nothing. I cannot believe how many times I've called this doctor and asked for him to prescribe something for pain and have been brushed aside like I must be joking. I have been treated like I'm a junkie looking for my fix!! What is wrong with these doctors....?? So I'm still in pain and don't see a doctor until October 6th whom in which is the PA because the Rhemo is booked until November
