Treatments & Medication

Treatments & Medication

After years of pain I was diagnosed with A.S. 5yrs ago. Trying to get something to relieve the pain. When I read so many updates and I think thats me. Then go to their story & treatment only to find nothing there. Could I kindly ask all to look at their profile and take 5mins to put what med you use or have used. There might be something that would help. Thank you. Hugs to all xx

New Symptom

New Symptom

I've been fortunate so far to not have much pain from these back issues but the last few days, my left leg has tingled from time to time. It doesn't really hurt, but it does worry me a little. I have a numb spot on my leg already. Could this escalate to losing feeling in my leg?

A MySpondylitisTeam Member said:

Actually speak to your doctor because it can cause numbness and tingling because your nerve can get pinched with the back issues.

Has Anyone Had Trouble Losing Weight After Being Put On Prednisone?

Has Anyone Had Trouble Losing Weight After Being Put On Prednisone?

I was only diagnosed about a year and a half ago. My doctor wanted me to try Prednisone for 2 weeks tapering me off it in those two weeks to confirm I have AS. I gained 30 pounds in just two short weeks and now am really struggling to get it off. It has also made my body ache more since I am carrying the extra weight. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could do? Thank you for the help!

Recently my Facebook feed has been FULL of friends talking about their different health and wellness accountability groups and how this shake or that protein powder changed their lives and makes them feel so much better.
