Hi everyone,

As you requested we have created a section in the forum for another age group that deals with spondylitis.

In the meantime we will keep an eye on the bandwidth just in case this new section has too much traffic.

Mike, we have a few thirty-somethings that are cool enough to hang with us here too. wink My husband turns 30 next week, so obviously I can't discriminate too much. :P

I am new to the whole as game and just started enbrel. It took over 5 years to diagnose me because the drs in idaho refuse to test young females for as. My father and brother both have as and along with that my entire family is swimming in autoimmune diseases. I'm trying to get tested for sjogrens as well. Most drs I have seen have confused my legit pain for hypochondria or a way to get drugs. I saw a specialist who refused to give me anything based on the fact that I have tattoos and piercings. My parents believed something was wrong with me and my father write an email to his rheumy because my dr would not give me a referral. This rheumy was kind enough to see me and he believes me. It has been a hard few years feeling like maybe the pain really isn't there and now I have a name for it and treatment. The only thing still bothering me is my fatigue. Anyone have advice on how to deal with my fatigue?
