: I would like to hear from anyone else who has AS.
: My husband was diagnosed about 15 years ago. He is 36 and generally he is OK just the usual stiffness. He had a chronic flare up 12 years ago and has just had another which lasted for about 6 months. Not only did he suffer stiffnes in the hips back and neck, but had swelling of both feet, knees and hands. He is currently taking Feldene and Salazapyrin. My question is does any one else suffer these rather incapacitating flare ups?
Hi. We have a site dedicated to AS if you are interested and the forums there provide
great support for those of us with this disease.
