HI my AS warriors! I was just wondering if any of my friends here have lost your height...? I have been 6'2" since the 8th grade & always had good posture!! Now...? I am barely 4'9" tall...!!! My neck is fused & it is so very painful. I cn't see where I am going when walking, which can be very interesting ~LOL! I do my best & count each day as a blessing!! Somedays are easier than others, but ... they all suck lately. I hope y'all have a great night!!!🤔
I was always 5'6" and now I am just under 5'4" and I have osteoporosis that comes with my AS. My neck pain is quite painful but I have learned about the Vagus Nerve & I bought a sparker & I hit where it is sore & it helps the pain. I learned it from Cheryl Townsley of Lifestyle for Health.
No...still same height but tend to bend over due to flatback I think I have. Lost muscle/fat in my left buttock. So odd. Anyone else?
I am new to this & still learning.....I am just tired of being in pain.....after my back surgery July 12, 2022 - I have nerves cut, bone fragments taken out, fusion & 2 screws in my L4 & L5. Since the surgery I started with leg pain up into my hips, buttocks & low back....I've had 2 doses of prednisone, tried gambapetin, & lastly an injection of Marcaine. Nothing is helping...so, now they have sent me to rehab with a diagnosis of Spondylolisthesis, lumbar region....NO ONE explained the diagnos, so I googled it & my rehab guy showed me through using a vertebrae to show me....along with Pseudoclaudiation syndrome. I AM SHAKING MY HEAD. I have put on alot of weight & fighting to try & loose...it's depressing as I am sure all of you are dealing with the same things......I have also shrunk.....used to be 5'4" now I am 5'2"....
