Hi,

I noticed your post on Iritis, and wondered if you can tell me just a bit about your case.

I had a first attack several weeks ago, and had no idea what it was till I just happened to mention it to my Dr. All I found out was that if I had another attack to get to an Opthamologist, and that it was connected to autoimmune problems, and AS.

I happen to have several Autoimmune problems going on.

Thanks,
Donna
