I have AS and am on immunosuppressive treatments. I’ve been having right upper quadrant pain for months and no one can tell me why. Been in and out of the hospital and had endoscopy and colonoscopy. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. They already checked my liver, gallbladder, and pancreas

      I get some pretty intense intermittent pain over one of my kidneys and i found out it was actually spasms in the muscle attachments around my ribcage. The only thing that ive found has really helped is muscle relaxers when its really bad and stretching. Muscle spasms with AS seem to be pretty common from what ive been told by my doctor

      Hi, have you tried doing a CT scan that includes both the chest and abdomen? Sometimes pain in the upper right abdomen can even be something from the lower lungs that feels like it's in the stomach. What about blood tests? Is there anything in the blood tests? I would suggest trying to continue to perform comprehensive tests to understand what the problem is.

        @Jack38 There’s been no answers in the blood tests. But I have chronic inflammation in my blood from my other conditions. But we are now thinking it could have something to do with my diaphragm
