Been recently diagnosed with AS. I used to be a full time support worker for the elderly until my symptoms flared and left me in bed the past 7 months. My diagnosis lead to me being put on amgevita. I'm into my 3rd month and I feel its exacerbated my pain. I recently got a cortisone injections 4 days ago into my hip. I never knew I could feel worse but its possible! How do others cope? Iv found myself in tears all day every day. Not being able to go to walk let alone do the housework. Not being able to be a mum to my boys. 1 of my sons has went to live with his dad for help. Me and my 7yr old spend most days in bed. He knows mummy isn't very well, I struggle to make it to school some days. I'm wondering how to help with the pain if anything? Every pain relief I have had is ineffective. Is there any tips or techniques. I'm still extremely new to all of this. Finding it extremely difficult to cope with most days..
