I Have Spondylosis Not Spondylitis Any One Else Have This As They Are Different

A MySpondylitisTeam Member said:

I have read of the difference, Irish shows inflammation on x Ray, osis does not. Similar in that both are the result of lack of smoothness in the joint or end of bones and both cause varying discomfort, not because of the inflammation as much as the nerve endings being irritated. The itis can be treated with biologics and TNF meds, while osis cannot. The itis concludes the body is turning on itself ( autoimmune)due to the nerve irritation, the osis concludes the body is not turning on itself. At the end of the day, both cause the same symptoms.
