How has AS progressed for you? Has it progressively gotten worse with time?

      omg thats terrible..especially when there is not enough showing on scans. Biologics have changed my life completely...i tried all sorts of pain relief but nothing has compared to the biologics. I hope you find something that works for you soon. Im scared of what the future holds as i know even biologics are not a cure for this..

          @cosycat92 hey sorry it's been so long I forgot to turn on notifications then forgot I had the app 🫣. I am limited in my meds because they stop working after time. I've been on tramadol, diazepam ( which they only gave me 3 doses of then refused to prescribe again) cocodamol. Now I've been prescribed codeine ( which has stopped working after 2 years), amitriptyline ( which only helps with sleep ). I have had this since the age of 15. My pregnancies were horrendous. My docs won't change my meds because of certain personal issues, which I have addressed. The older I get thebhaddrr ot is to move and I feel absolutely guilty for my partner having to take care of me. To balance this out I think about what would happen if he wasn't here, I live alone. No xrays or other tests can actually confirm diagnosis but because my dad had it and his sister has it they say it fits. I have been advised to go on disability allowance but I refuse. Until the moment I physically cannot move, I will contue earning my money.

      More symptoms like Joint pain, inflammation that causes pain and stomach issues. It seems like their is something new everyday. Absolutely getting worse it’s been 4 years since all of this has manifested and differently gotten worse. We know our bodies better then anyone.
