Hey everyone. I'm active duty in the Air Force right now as was just diagnosed with AS. I actually just found out today and will find out when my rheumatologist appointment is tomorrow. I was doing some searches and found this site. I've had the bad back pain for about a year now, which was triggered while I was on a deployment to Iraq. Basically I wanted to see if you guys could give me some advice on what I should do to take care of myself with the AS and the discharge I guess I will be getting? Thanks for the help in advance.
