At What Age Are Most People Diagnosed At?
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Literature states 20-30’s yrs at onset. I’ve always had low back pain and problems all my life but suddenly have a Sacroilitis but am not being told anything. Just take these pills and it will help. Waiting for VA to approve of me going to the spine clinic at our local physicians group. Just aggravated because I’m layning on my back or standing are my only 2 positions I can stand.

A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I saw my back/pain doctor yesterday and asked for a definitive diagnosis. I was told I have spinal stenosis and sciatica. I asked if it would be considered spondylitis and was told that it was a "catch-all" phrase.

How long do I have to deal with this and expect relief? Has anyone tried acupuncture, and does it work? Any… read more

A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I did one quick session and must admit that I’m more relaxed. Here’s a video I found that briefly explains the technique -
