Ankylosing Spondylitis anyone?
« on: July 06, 2010, 08:23:49 PM »
i  know it's not exactly KNEE related, but I was recently diagnosed, like 8 weeks ago.. and waiting on some more testing this week and then follow up with teh Rheumy and new medications.    This disease is very closely related to RA, so I just wondered if anyone else has this Dx...

i have AS also. originally misdiagnosed. it spread throughout my body very quick.

now on remicaid for 4 weeks.

originally had knee problems, but now neck, hands, feet, chest, ribs. im only 25. hoping medicine helps. then im going back to ortho, next month, at Hospital for Special Surgery, and am goin to inquire about stem cells and the Regenexx ppl in Colorado. hopefully they can help.
