Sudden Onset Of Extreme Pain

Sudden Onset Of Extreme Pain

I’m new here so please bear with me. 3 days ago I was feeling good and went outside to do some light cleanup. After a couple of hours I sat down to take a rest and BOOM- I felt like I was hit by a truck! I suddenly had all my normal spots on fire plus others - low back, hip, knee, neck, shoulder, wrist, hands, fingers, toes, rib cage. Even my skin hurt in places when I touched it. I had one of the worst headaches ever. Felt dizzy, off balance, and a little nauseous. Slept all… read more

Has Anyone Had A Discogram Done Recently.

Has Anyone Had A Discogram Done Recently.

The Doctor is getting me set up to have a Discogram. I cannot have an MRI due to the fact i have bi- laterial cochlear implants. Has any one had this done recently. And any after effect after this. I am going surgery in near future. Pain has become so bad. Its made my life miserable. I want my life back.
Any recommendations on this or surgery is much appreciated

Newly Diagnosed And Want To Know What Is And Isn’t Related To The AS?

Newly Diagnosed And Want To Know What Is And Isn’t Related To The AS?

I’ve read through several Q&A and don’t see info on some of my abnormalities. Anyone have easy or unexplained bruises all over you? Extreme sensitivity to tempatures? When feet are swollen they turn purple-redish color? My SI joints hurt but recently while I’m trying to exercise or sit my tailbone hurts, anyone else? Just trying to assure myself my rheumotogist is on the right track. Thank you

Has Anyone Had Acid Refux So Bad They Required Surgery ?

Has Anyone Had Acid Refux So Bad They Required Surgery ?

I am having a Fundoplication surgery on Friday and am wondering if this has gotten so bad for others that they have had the same surgery and what the outcome was? I am slightly concerned that it is being caused by my AS and Fybro and that even after surgery I may still have the issue. Have others gone through the same with medications failing and no other option other than having this done. Thanks

A MySpondylitisTeam Member said:

Yes I have the same but I also have a small hernia at the top of my stomach, I believe it’s damage from my pain doctor previously putting me on tramadol… read more
