Is Anyone Not Using Pharmaceuticals For Their AS?

Is Anyone Not Using Pharmaceuticals For Their AS?

I currently am using Tylenol 3 for pain. I cannot take NSAIDS. I do not want to take anything else. I already take 8 pills a day because I had a heart attack in May and really struggle with anxiety. My Rheumatologist has mentioned Biologics. I want to stay away from meds as long as I can. I do struggle with pain, sweats, IBS and so many of the other commons symptoms, but I have to try everything else first.

@A MySpondylitisTeam Member you can get essential oils at stores but you don't truly know if they have chemicals in them or not as they legally only need 5% oils for them to put 100% essential oils on the label. Young Living guarantees 100% natural seed to seals oil which you have to buy online

I have AS and progression has fully fused me from coxec to t1. Got the bone growth over it too. The biologics help me a lot and they also help slow and stop the progression. They were not available when I need them.

For non meds I did this with a good yoga teacher. It took me 3 tries to get a good one, so if you don’t connect try again. I did private l lesson as my progress was such that injury could be a problem in a classroom environment. I still do some , the meditation and breathing help me work through pain. I had been pretty good with pain b4 but got much better after , I owe her a lot for that.

Also thi quan do (sp) is good but I was to fused to do this.

Everything can be found on YouTube, Netflix.. I suggest trying sun salutations. Concentrate on the breathing it helps a lot. Hope this helps.

Back again I don’t like pills. What I did intern be side 30-40 nsaids a day ( I still hav liver - lol). Some relieve with acupuncture mat (Parma mat) it’s like a nail bed and moves the bodies focus off you spine. Gave me a few hours of relieve Then the ems (not tens - they only last while using) compex edge was good for me. Cost about 120 but got good blast to areas I need. I use every three days. Inversion helped I had full table at first and stopped the curving then I went to sit down inversion. I use sit down 1-2 times a month still good but I need to watch my back

I’m trying cbd not , it’s ok but might need medical grade.

I postponed biological and should have not. They help a lot and slow / stop progression they do have side effects but I have yet to have problems.
