When you have ankylosing spondylitis, seeing your doctor regularly becomes a habit, and in important part of your life.
In this discussion I propose you to talk about your experience:
- Was it difficult for you to find a specialist?
- How often do you see them now? Has the frequency of your visits changed since diagnosis and why?
- Have you ever consulted more than one specialist to get a second opinion?
- What is your relationship with your doctor? Do you find them attentive enough to your inquiries and to your opinion?
