I usually don't pay much attention to physical discomfort bit yesterday it got so bad I took myself to the ER. I was having severely nausea and loan up the sides of my back. Blood tests and a cat scan showed nothing wrong, in fact a couple of nurses commented on how they rarely see a healthier specemin of my age.
I am waiting on the approval process for this. I've researched it so much and my doctor and I believe it is the right way for me to go due to anxiety with the Humira pen. I have been on Celebrex for the past year and I am in pain everyday and so fatigued. If anyone knows more about the Simponi Aria I would love to know your thoughts.
Is anyone bowel incontinent? I have started leaking out poo and I don't know it's there until I go to the loo and I, well, smell it! My GP is treating me for severe impacting, so I'm on Laxido, was on Lactulose but it didn't do the trick . But, since taking it (started last Friday) twice daily, from Monday this week, several times a day, there is always some poo (and I mean several wipes worth, we're going through loo roll at a rate of knots ) sometimes quite a bit on my… read more
I am looking for alternative treatments for my AS. Will be on pure Medicare this next year and I’m very doubtful that I will be able to afford my humira. If you are using or have tried using either the full product or the cbd (without thc) I would love the feed back. Also if you know a source for good cbd, product descriptions are sketchy online. ( I can buy from 9 to 120 and they all read the same) thank you!
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!
are you an every day or on and off.. i have had pain off and on most of my life. i think what masked it 90 percent of the time is i slept on a warm water bed for years but none the less i had days where it felt like some one stabbing me in the but, my chest felt like i was kicked in the chest and the couple of times i ended up in the er cause my lower back hurt so bad i could not sit or stand. they said it was a pulled muscle.
I started symptoms when I was 16, chiropractors and more chiropractors until my early 30's and I quit. Diagnosed at 43 :'( Two spinal fusion surgeries, 70% curve in my l 4, l 5 and because I walked around with a fractured screw for over a year after my first surgery that caused 6 discs to rupture which were caged in my second surgery along with rods, bigger now :/ pins screws etc etc etc, instead… read more
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.
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
