💙 This May I’m also wearing blue for Spondyloarthritis awareness! 💙
Spondyloarthritis can affect anyone: male, female and children and cares nothing about age. It is an autoimmune inflammatory illness of the spine BUT it attacks all of the body as a whole too. Tendons, tissues, joints and your whole body systems. It doesn’t know how to stop and will just keep attacking. It is a disease that is so complex with all the information you can find on it…and even to this day I still get so confused with the information out there. But regardless I still want to spread the word and spread the basics of these diseases. It’s not something I ever thought I’d be facing but here I am. There may be medications you can go on to help slow it down but as shown below it is degenerative in nature and will continue to do its damage. So as an AS warrior I just wanted to share a little about what it is I go through for just a little bit of understanding for that pain.
PS – Spondyloarthritis is the umbrella term for a group of diseases that cause inflammation in the spine (“spondylitis”) and joints (“arthritis)
