I guess it's time to list me symptoms:

1. stiffness midback and between shoulder blades
2. pain lower back and on tailbone sometimes
3. left-shoulder pain
4. hand and wrist pain
5. right-knee pain
6. right-ankle pain
7. plantar fasciitis left foot
8. migraine headaches of worsening severity
9. neck----snaps and crackles
10. bone pain (that's a new and recent symptom)

The heck of all this is the pain tends to move around and not even be consistent from one day to the next. The back aches and pains are pretty constant.

That is one reason why we are so hard to diagnose. I have had most of your symptoms, except for the bone pain.

Jerry has AS, fibro, torn discs and undiagnosed crohns.

low back pain
thoracic pain (used to crack and get relief, much harder to crack now, and very stiff)
plantar fasciitis
shin splints
feet swell terribly
buttock pain
cannot sit for more than 10 minutes
cannot stand or walk for any length of time
feeling of broken glass in his stomach
feeling of 'battery acid' in his intestines
constipation/diarrhea alternating within hours of each other (explain that one??)
very tight muscles in his calves and close to his spine (muscle spasms?)
neck pain
swelling of hands and difficulty moving his fingers, esp in the morning
can barely move in the morning because of stiffness
occasional blurred vision and eye pain (never has had iritis)
achilles tendonitis
difficulty sleeping
almost total fusion in both SI joints
stenosis in S1 through L5

I mentioned the above conditions he has, because it's hard to tell which symptoms belong to which condition.
