I was diagnosed two years ago with ankylosing spondylitis, and more recently with tuberculosis (latent, not contageous) and a pinched nerve at C6.

Though I had developed a much better sleep cycle, the pinched nerve causes numbness/tingling down my arms through the ulnar nerve. I have a hard time sleeping, generally take some sort of sleeping aid, and end up sleeping too much.

I am currently seeing a host of doctors and a physical therapist to manage my issues, but it is hard to keep positive some days. One thing that helped is getting a FitBit. I used to walk between 500 and 4,000 steps per day on average (depending on if it was a work day or not). I am now up to a regular goal of 7,500 steps per day.
