Well I was just trying to find out some information on it. If any one has been diagnosed with it and has some input let me know.

Dear Girl Next Door,
Welcome to the boards. Sorry no one has responded yet, but keep checking back. I have never heard of it. Have you tried seaching on medical websites or just doing an overall internet search with that as your keyword. You might get more info than you can handle .

Good luck,

Re: Ankylosing Spondolitis

I don't, but my dad does. It's where the vertebrae fuse together, usually creating height loss and serious curvature of the spine.

It's not hereditary...I checked, since I had so many back problems from an accident and needed to exclude it as a cause.

What I saw my whole life was a man who didn't have time to do the exercises recommended, because he traveled way too much. That resulted in a more significant progression of the disease. He's lost at 5 inches as a result.

It's not much, but I hope it helps.
