When Is It Time To Try Biologics?

When Is It Time To Try Biologics?

I was diagnosed with non-radiographic axSpa a few months ago. I’ve tried several NSAIDs, PT over the years, exercise, prednisone, injections etc., all of which have helped some, but I am still having pain
The rheumatologist wants me to try 4 weeks of prednisone again, along with Tramadol, to see if that will help. When I mentioned concerns about progression, he said that I shouldn’t worry about it - but that Enbrel might be an option if I would like to try it
I appreciate all the help I’ve… read more

Anyone Who Has AS And Gastrointestinal Manifestations, What Are Your Symptoms? AND, How Do You Manage Your Symptoms?

Anyone Who Has AS And Gastrointestinal Manifestations, What Are Your Symptoms? AND, How Do You Manage Your Symptoms?

I am a 26 yr old female who was diagnosed with AS in February earlier this year. Though like most, I have experienced symptoms since I was 16 yrs old. When I was 21, I began experiencing full blown GI attacks that presented it self similar to Crohn's Disease symptoms. The flares have evolved since that time, occuring 1 to 2 times per year at 4 weeks at a time in addition to constipation and bloating. At this point, I am frustrated with the test results... They found ileitis on my initial CT scan… read more

Medical Marijuana, Cbd Use

Medical Marijuana, Cbd Use

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!

23andme

Hello
Wondering if anyone else has done 23andme and is aware of if/how the raw detailed results might point towards genetic predisposition towards spondylitis or other inflammatory or arthritic conditions? I was tested for the specific gene associated with spondylitis by my doctor 7 years ago but didn’t have it; wondering if there are other possible genetic markers that may help my doctors narrow down a diagnosis & treatment. According to the results I am at a high risk for developing Type 2… read more

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 hip. It feels like I can't stride out on the left side, the… read more

Thoughts On Seeing A Chiropractor For Cervical Pain…

Thoughts On Seeing A Chiropractor For Cervical Pain…

I’d like to ask if anyone has ever seen a chiropractor for pain associated with AS? I’ve been to one 3 times now. My cervical spine is so stiff & has worsen over the last year & a half. I don’t have the natural curve in my neck, so my neurosurgeon suggested having massages, which has lead to adjustments at my chiropractor. Before I go further with him, should I be allowing him to pop or adjust my neck?? Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
