    I made an appointment with a rheumatologist and she did blood work. I was positive for the HLA B27 Gene which is the gene for AS

    My doctor did tests for arthritis and other rheum disorders, and also like autoimmune disorders, For me, my doctor said you Caaaan do the genetic test but that it’s not a sure answer, so we’re doing a medication trial and if it helps my body, it’s definitely AS

    They put me on methotrexate, he just said it was one of the most common arthritis medications and that it may help😅 I’ve just been in pain for so long, I’m almost willing to try anything
