What role does orgasm play in stress reduction and/or pain relief?

What role does orgasm play in stress reduction and/or pain relief?

I've not seen this question asked. I recognize the challenges of ongoing pain, discomfort and backing away from physical contact and intimacy. What I've heard is most people don't want to be bothered, it's another task and/or imposition. What I know is it's difficult to nurture relationships when you're feeling miserable and you want to be left alone.
Physiologically/psychologically speaking, there is a pleasure zone that can lift us out of… read more

Someone please tell me about "shots."

Someone please tell me about "shots."

I've gotten steroid injections at specific target.
I've gotten nonsteroid injections for general area.
Not supposed to come back for 3 months. I've always been ready to return at 2 months.
NOW I've been sent on supposedly for epidural (numbing the whole spine?) It supposed to be good for a year?

I read people's posts here... seems there are lots of kinds of shots. Anyone want to straighten me out please???

How many people think their spondelosisthesis ia also affecting their hips.

How many people think their spondelosisthesis ia also affecting their hips.

I have spondelosisthesis a grade 1,the other complication I have is related to my left hip. One consultant went from diagnosing spondelosisthesis to saying I need a new hip, which will make your back worst but I can't treat that? I just knew in my gutt this was incorrect. I had a second opinion, from another consultant. My symptoms are apart from the lower back pain, are that I can hardly walk due to the pain and restriction in my left… read more

Weary about biologics

Weary about biologics

Hi there,

40 year old male diagnosed this year but likely have had it for 20 years.

Xrays show fusion in T3 (among other areas). I have pain daily and stiffness. Doctors categorize as severe. Inflammation markers are high.

Treatments tried:

1- multiple NSAIDS which I know are not sustainable and also didn’t sit well with stomach
2- regular gym, massage, stretching - this helps
3- no starch diet for 3 months (not sure yet if this is helping)

Doctors have all recommended I go straight to… read more

Help: Has anyone had their legs give out at the groin area?

Help: Has anyone had their legs give out at the groin area?

Before back surgery and now my legs have a tendency of giving out when I walk and sometimes when I am standing. It gives out at the groin area which causes a sharp shooting pain. If you have or have had this problem please let me know what was and or is being done to alleviate it.

Thank you so much.

Neck braces

Neck braces

I have full fusion in my neck area. It is fused in a head downward position. I was wondering if anyone might know if wearing a neck brace several times a day might help to straighten neck to a more normal position ? I know most here with AS are not in the complete fusion stage ( and I hope never are), but maybe someone might know if this might help.

Female issues/Pudendal Neuralgia?

Female issues/Pudendal Neuralgia?

Anyone have intermittent genital nerve pain/tingling? My pelvic PT says it may be pudendal neuralgia from spinal muscle spasms pressing on a nerve. She also said the pelvic area tightens when the SI joints need help. But my rheumatologist says the genital tingiling is from fibromyalgia.
