I have as my son also suffers with bad back. Im hoping I havent passed it on?
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!
Do you follow any special diet like Whole 30, Paleo, Ketogenic? Has it helped?
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
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.

Most of my daily pain is in my SI joints, therefore I am going to see a pain management specialist and discuss having a SI joint ablation. I have had a SI joint injection that worked wonders for about 3 weeks. Was wondering if anyone else with AS and SI joint pain has had an ablation of the nerves in the joint and if so, what was their results.
Does anyone else have chronic constipation and terrible soreness and pain in your intestines? I can barely walk sometimes. It hurts to just sit up or lay down.... I hope someone can let me know if this goes with spondylitis.....
I started having some numbness and tingling in my right shoulder, down the arm and into the hand. This is 2nd time in a week it has happened. I can still move it, still feel like normal, no pain, no other symptoms (other than panic/anxiety thinking it might be a stroke) I mentioned it to my rheumatologist when i saw her last week and she said its probably a nerve as the other time happened when i was driving for a couple of hours..
Has something like this happened to anyone else?
Yes it was from the inflammation but if that's in check may just be carpal tunnel
I tested negative on having any food allergies, but I do feel that food can affect inflammation. I cut saturated fats out because I was on keto and I was really hurting. Now I feel worse. Fatigue and hurting
