Anklosying Spondylitis

Last updated: April 2023

I was recently diagnosed with AS. My rheumatologist first started me on Plaquenil even though I told her my last RA doctor gave me Plaquenil, and it made me so sick. I gave it another try and the same thing happened. So now I’m taking Cosentyx, and it’s working amazingly well. I still have tons of back and hip pain, depression, and anxiety, and I’m always stiff. I also have RA, secondary Sjorgen’s, and fibromyalgia.
