Did Ankylosing Spondylitis Change You Other Than Physically?
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone else feel like their personality and outlook on life has changed?
I put a smile on my face but inside I just feel so sad. Like I’m just a shell of who I used to be. Like the old me is gone. Most days I am okay but some days it is such a struggle to do anything like chores or things I use to enjoy. I don’t know maybe I’m just having a rough day. I know talking to my fellow Spondylitis sufferers understand. 😔😟

Hi All, Happy Sunday. I Started With This Awfulness About A Year Ago.
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am curious as to whether anyone else is dealing with something called Exertional Compartment Syndrome related to their AS. Mine is compartment syndrome of the lower legs. Little by little over the last year, I noticed that every time I would squat down, my legs felt like they were going to pop. Then I started noticing a bulge in the compartments of my lower legs, right below my knees, both legs. Finally, a very astute and kind orthopedist did some pressure measurements in the compartments of… read more

Is Spondylitis An Autoimmune Disease Too ?
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am a newly diagnosed patient with Spondylosis. My condition is very advanced, considering I'm just 33 years old. I have a plethora of non pain related symptoms all day everyday in Conjunction with my pain and limited mobility. Is this considered an autoimmune disease too?

Unfortunately no spondylosis..my understanding and experience is osteoarthritis in your back. Fancy way of what the docs will say normal wear and tear. Autoimmune is ankylosing spondylitis and… read more

Have You Had Your Children Tested For HLA-B27?
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Whenever my children complain about pain or ongoing health issues, I find myself panicking. Which I know is not helpful. I wonder if testing them would make things BETTER (as perhaps we/they could be proactive in avoiding environmental triggers, how they eat and how they manage stress) or if it would make things WORSE as perhaps they would get paranoid about each little pain/ailment. What are your thoughts?

A MySpondylitisTeam Member

Suzannega, I am sorry to hear of your struggles and those of your children. I am sure it is difficult to know they have these issues to handle
I fully agree on your take on diet... you have no… read more

I don’t know what it is or the cause. I closed and opened each eye separately and it does it with both eyes and no the have diagonal shadows. Years ago I used to see something dark above my eyes in the dark and thought it was the frame of my glasses I was seeing in… read more
