So I was in the garden center buying some lawn fertilizer, and imagine my surprise when I heard what sounded like a generic ad about back pain.... and then the voice started saying "If you are under 40 and have recurring back pain, you may have an inflammatory condition called ankylosing spondylitis." Paraphrasing of course. I was so excited! smile

46, diagnosed with AS in early 2005 and on TNF-blockers since then: They have been miracle drugs for me. On Enbrel from spring 2005 to Nov 2008. On Humira from Nov 2008 to present. Baclofen and OTC anti-inflammatories as needed.
