I'm the firstborn child (I have one younger brother); I was diagnosed with PsA and AS a little over two years ago. My son (second born ... I have an older son who is relatively symptom free and has not been diagnosed) was diagnosed six months before I was. His doctor at Mayo feels that there is a two out of three chance that both of my parents have AS, but they have not been tested.

My mom has it, I have it, and I'm about 95% sure my daughter (first born) has it........ we go to a children's rheumy tomorrow to get tested.. she's scared..... I feel bad... I guess I know how mom feels now when she periodically says "I'm sorry kiddo, I feel responsible" Not like it's your fault you pass it down, I always tell her to Shhhhhh that's not necessary, it's one of those things...... but now I kinda know how she feels.... Anyway my 2nd born, my son, has no signs whatsoever. My daughter is 16, has been having some issues for the last year or so....


I'm no doctor, my bank account should be proof of that, so my medical opinions and advice are strictly that, my opinion and experiences.
