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?
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.
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 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.
