What Is the difference of spinal stenosis and spondylitis?
I’m experiencing a lot of swelling and pain located in my ankles but also in the other joints of my feet, sometimes stabbing pains, aching, neuropathy, numbness & certain movements cause sharp pains. Some days it feels like I sprained my ankle, others not. They also at times appear bruised. X-rays show no significant arthritis. Does anyone else experience this type of pain & has your rheumatologist confirmed it’s related to AS?
I have occasional severe chest pain across the middle of my chest. a couple years ago I talked to my primary care physician about it and he had no clue. Chest xray, EKG, etc showed NO CARDIAC PROBLEMS. Next time I see him I'll tell him of chest pain with spondylitis. Good to know! It had scared me.
You are not alone! Wishes for a blessed day. Hugs, Wanda
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?
