I just can't always stop as I still try to transition after a diagnosis so recent but after decades of having AS symptoms.

Tingling And Numbness In Arm - Anyone Else?
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I started having some numbness and tingling in my right shoulder, down the arm and into the hand. This is 2nd time in a week it has happened.
