      Also important to remember inflammatory markers can sometimes appear normal and you can have the disease without the HLAB27 gene. Diagnosis can be complex, request to see a rheumatologist.

      Hi 😊 the first step is asking for a referal to Rheumatology and for a HLA-B27 genetic test. Which symptoms have you been having?

      Speak to your Dr. To order tests for inflammatory markers and definitely see a rheumatologist ASAP to start tx. It's a life long condition. Making sure you stretch at home , clean up diet and hit the gym. Must have a holistic approach to live well and tackle AS. Hope this was helpful. Thanx.
