I'm 18 years old/female and have been living with the pain of Anklosing Spondilitis since I was 10. All of my joints are affected and am now taking one of two medications that work for the long term: celebrex. The other is indocine. Indocine has given me some stomach problems and stops working after 6-9 months. I was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalsia (I believe I am spelling that right) and with it, increased pain. You'd think it would be enough to just have my joints hurt now very intense muscle pain!

I'm looking for some advice for the long term. I've heard about fusion? I'm in college now, wanting to go to Vet school but am becoming more and more depressed, the pain worsens every day it seems and I'm beginning to think it's only going to get worse. What happens in the long run.. I really need some help! Feel free to contact me!
