Hi there I've recently been diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis and scholorosis of the spine . I'm only 27 and havr been on a infusion called infliximab but unfortunately my body rejected the drug and gave me a bad allergic reaction with tightening of the chest and problems breathing. I've now been offered a new drug called golimumab which is a self inject. Is anyone else on here have the same disedis as me and how have you managed to control your pain to get on with daily activities. I've had to stop horse riding cut my hours down at a farm where I work and having to claim benefits. My partner left me as I wasn't giving him sex any lomger due to the pain.
