seychelles311 - I'm new here, but I've been dealing with autoimmune issues for almost a year now. I had my first flare up of Anterior Uveitis last summer. In my case it's an autoimmune issue that causes inflammation of part of the eye. They've done genetic testing for me and have been asking me about back pain since the uveitis presented & I haven't had any until recently. I've been under the care of a rheumatologist & she's doing bloodwork to confirm, but she's basically diagnosed me with AS. I was curious how your appointment went & hope you're doing well.
