Hello everyone. I haven’t been around much lately, but I definitely see familiar names. I’m rely glad to discover this new thread.
I have become riddled with bursitis in the last few years. AS can be the underlying cause for bursitis, so I’ve been told that in my case treating the bursitis means controlling my AS. Humph! Easier said than done.

I’ve had injections in the past, but they weren’t effective for more than a few weeks. Now I am no longer allowed steroids. frown

Let me know your experience, any advice is appreciated.

Did you try a TNF alpha blocker before considering the IL-17 blocker Cosentyx? I ask because Costenyx should be used with caution in someone with IBS.
A member of our support group had to stop Cosentyx secondary to a major increase in IBS symptoms starting almost immediately after his first dose.

I am going to try shock wave therapy (ESWT) for my left Achilles Bursitis tomorrow...
by the way apart from swelling, and discomfort while walking can this lead to Achilles rupture?

You are not taking or can't take an TNF alpha blocker? I had terrible bursitis until I went on Humira which cleared it up complete. Steriod shots did not help both shoulders.

If you tried one, try more.
