I'd be curious for the offical answer as well. I seem to recall reading part of a European journal article on PubMed the other week that said only 30% of patients ever see a total or partial remission, but I am sure I am off on that. Personally in 25 years, I've only had 4 years intermixed that was relatively symptom free.


25 yr+ with significant and aggressive A.S.,fibromyalgia, and scoliosis. Currently on Cosentyx, advil, gabapetin, mobic, voltaren gel, tylenol, prednasone, low dose naltrexone.

There are different versions of AS, and thus different remissions. When I first got AS, my disease went in and out of remission for no apparent reason. I thought various diets did it, but no because it would come back. I would have it for 6 months and then 2/3 years of remission. I could never get diagnosed because by the time I saw doctor, I was in remission with nothing wrong with me except I could barely touch my knees let alone toes.

Then my disease got really severe in my 40's, and drug induced remission was for only a short time and then the medication would "turn to water". After I finally found the right drug, I have been in drug induced remission for over 5 years. It is shaky though. If I am late with the drug, it starts coming back and I can still over do it. Plus the damage has not gone away.


Actema IV once a month (with pre loading for allergic reaction), Cymbalta x1 daily, Arava 20mg daily. Diagnosed with AS in 2004, suffered undiagnosed since 1982.

I wonder what the numbers are for drug induced remission vs remission on it's own and if that includes all associated symptoms.
