So this week my bloodwork came back showing that my thyroid has been a bit sluggish. Seems to me that people with AS usually have more than one issue, but hypothyroidism is on another spectrum for me. Do any other people have these sorts of issues?


Arthritis issues since youth, back pains started at age 14 (1994). Dx with AS in January, 2016.
HLA-B27 Positive
Other Dx: GERD, Raynauds, Bursitis in Mutiple Joints

Yes, I have hypothyroidism and AS. I take Armour thyroid and it helps a great deal. I tried levothyroxine and felt sluggish on it. My doc told me Armour works better but a lot of docs won't prescribe it.


Arava, low dose daily Prednisone, sulfasalazine

I don't have Thyroid problems, but I do have multiple diagnosis. Not only do I have A.S. but I also have Multiple Sclerosis (M.S.), and Osteoporosis. Also, I was "diagnosed" with a few other things before finally being dx'd with A.S. and those remain in my medical records. (Fibromyalga, GERD, anxiety).

Hi I also have multiply diagnosis including MS. It kinda sucks when one doc blames all your problems on the disease that they don't have to help you with.
