I've been thinking a lot about what the pain management doctor told me. He said I did not have AS. However, my back is always hurting. This morning, while lying in bed, I noticed when laying on my stomach, I can push my pelvis forward and the pain went away. I looked up, Can the spine be curved too much forward.

That was real useful info on Lordoses you sent DebSmith. With laying on bed with pillow under tummy etc. Thank you sending you back a hug. Have some really good days too.
@A MySpondylitisTeam Member Thank you dear. I was extremely overwhelmed by so many issues, diseases of back it's taken me 5 years to finally acknowledge that it isn't going to get better.

Wishing you a lovely day Deb!
Lordosis is real, and yes it can cause pain and other issues. I have this as well and work on it often. Try laying on your bed on your stomach with feet hanging off of bed with a small pillow under your tummy for 15 or 20 minutes 2 to 4 times a day, it seems too help me a bit on bad day's.
Wishing you well, hang in there!
Are you under a lot of stress? If so, please look up Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Do you have raised bumps on the area, along with being stressed? It could be a stress rash. I have both of these conditions. Stress Rash is hard to find information on.
Yes @A MySpondylitisTeam Member you and i are in the same proverbial boat dear. I'm not completely in compliance with giving in to this mess as i still fight it, but i accept stubbornly that it's not going to get better. I will always push and try, never giving up.
