After being treated by VA rheumatologists for AS for 8 years, I have been told that I do not have spondylitis. I was told at least twice during that time by my Dr that I did definitely did have the disease and just before the Dr cut me loose, I was seen by another rheumatologist in the VA system who said the inflammation on my current CT scan would only be caused by AS or something related to it. The VA would not do an MRI to confirm the diagnosis.

Has anyone else had this experience or heard of anyone else who has?
