AS Is No Joke
I have experienced lower back and hip pain since my teens. We (parents and I) figured it might have something to do with falling down cement steps when I was 15 and broke my pelvis, lugging 4 brothers and sisters around, and working warehouse jobs. Who knows what caused it.
By the time I was RX in 2001, I had been living with lower back pain for 26 years, steadily getting worse. Finally, a rheumatologist found and diagnosed it. I also have fibro and arthritis from the bottom of my neck down.
If I make plans to do something, like ride long ways or go family function, the next couple of days I do nothing because I know I will pay. You know you play you have to pay. LOL
Other than back pain and fatigue, what is the most common symptom that AS patients experience?
