I just realized - I think the rheumatologist asked about mouth sores which I said I hadn't had (she was asking me many questions in succession which were all no). I just realized today (because I got another one) that I have seemed to keep getting canker sores for a while now - last few months, last year or couple years maybe? Is that what she meant? Is that (possibly) related? I didn't think much of it. And I don't like throwing random symptoms at doctors.

I didn't realize canker sores could be related to AS. I just did some searching and sure enough it is a fairly common symptom. I get them multiple times a year and never gave it thought.

I would say it is worth mentioning.

Yes, mouth sores can be related to SpA.

Thanks Ginny for confirming.

Nicole, sounds like there are a number of things to discuss with your rheumatologist. I hope you can get some some answers. I am very new to this and find myself questioning everything.
