I am a newly diagnosed patient with Spondylosis. My condition is very advanced, considering I'm just 33 years old. I have a plethora of non pain related symptoms all day everyday in Conjunction with my pain and limited mobility. Is this considered an autoimmune disease too?
Sandra, one of the symptoms of Akylosing Spondilitis is rib pain. I have not experienced them at this time. I’m so sorry you’re living with that pain. Im happy to share a link as to why that occurs, if youre interested.
I think spondylitis and spondylosis differ but i could be wrong. I do know i have spondyloarthritis (sometimes called ankylosing spondylitis). It is an autoimmune disease.
I have Degenerative Disc Disease, lumbar spine spondylosis, Sciatica, osteopenia, osteophytic spurring, and a bulging disc, some spurs and a lot of pain. Yes, it's an autoimmune disease. Does anyone have a lot of spasms in your rib area?( among other places.) It is very painful and you can't move until it passes.
ChickNMO, yes please, send that info. Since this post I've been diagnosed with several other things as well and am curious. Thank you for your concern. I hope you are doing well. 🙏❤️
