i am on humira for 3 years now its great for my psoriasis which is clear, but my AS is very bad at the moment. i was in las vegas las summer and i was pain free for the 2 wks i was there and for 2 wks when i got back, but this irish weather is not good for it i think.
I Might not be a whole lot of help here but Just to let you know that my Uncle and my Mum has AS. Apparantly it is more severe in males. Both were only diagnosed in the last 10 years. My uncle is very stooped and has a lot of pain but I think it is because he was incorrectly diagnosed for years, they thought it was an old back injury and never queried it further . My Mum gets it dfficult to get out of bed in the morning and sometimes is prone to uveitis but once she keeps up her physio she keeps well. She is attending Blanchardstown hosp. and on a new type of drug which seems to be working wonders bringing down the level of inflamation in her blood. I had the blood test recently and it was negetive. I\'m not sure but I think it is passed on genetically through the male
I have just been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis after a year of hell. I am due to go to hospital next week to be put on a new treatment called anti-tnf therapy - does anyone have any information on the treatment or Ankylosing Spondylitis itself?
thanks so much
