Besides Plantar Fasciitis, How Has Having AS Affected Your Feet & Ankles?

A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

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 used to have compression socks, but am doing much better now with Yoga and Hydroxychloroquine.

Shoulder “gas” Bubble - Does Anyone Else Feel This?

A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

My right shoulder seems to have a new trick…and the only way I can describe it is a very sharp pain, but it feels like there’s a gas bubble inside the joint. And it will stay there for quite a while. My kids think I’m crazy. I have a pretty high tolerance for pain, but it almost feels like when the aspirate the joint to remove fluid. Does anyone else have this happen or am I special?

A MySpondylitisTeam Member

You might look into the possibility that you have a torn rotator cuff. You will need to get a MRI of the joint to determine if that is the cause. I have had rotator cuff repairs on both shoulders, two… read more
