Not officially diagnosed.....but

Severe Sciatica and what was diagnosed as "hamstring pull" in my mid 20's. I could barely walk.

Inexplicable rashes throughout my mid 20's to mid 30's. Several different diagnoses for these.

Fatigue and depression mid 20's to now age 39.

Ankle swelled to the size of a nerf football at age 33. I was told I had torn my posterior tibial tendon and we needed to operate. I didn't agree as there hadn't been any trauma.

2 bouts of iritis.

Big toe swelled to the size of an orange a year ago.

Bad neck pain and night sweats recently. Also, I was told that I have a pretty significant curvature of the spine. Can this be brought on by AS?

Thanks.

PS
Anyone know a good DR. in the Richmond, VA area?

I'm brand new to this forum and would like to share some of my symptoms.

* fatique
* pain and weakness in left wrist, elbow, shoulder
* unable to sleep in my bed (bones feel like their being crushed)I sleep in a recliner and it's getting old fast!
* loss of appetite
* more pronounced pain in the evening prior to bedtime
* pain when I breathe
* pain in back, knees, shoulders, ankles and wrists
* left wrist is nearly as wide as my left hand

I'm on a regimen of methotrexate - self injection (8 ml) once a week along with a vitamin D pill. Tomorrow (July 3rd) will be "shot" #9 and I'm not feeling any better. In fact, it started out, days one and two preceeding the shot were bad, but the rest of the week was good. Now I'm lucky if I have two to three good days a week. New as of last week, I'm having pain above my left eye and getting weekly headaches. My specialist tells me it will take nearly 12 shots before I will feel better.

Anyone else have experience with methotrexate and if so, how long before you felt some relief?

Thank you,
Kathleen

I have had symptoms for 7 years, was diagnosed with AS three years ago, and started Embrel 2 years ago. Symptoms are usually pretty well managed by weekly injection of Embrel and 2-3x daily Voltarin.

Symptoms are:

knee pain
frozen shoulders
neck tension and migraine
sciatica
numbness and pins and needles in right front thigh when tired
TMJ
history of plantar fasciatis

1)rib pain, excruciating to sneeze. When sleeping on my side and then turning back, it feels like my ribs are decompressing and hurts horribly.

2)Stiffness and pain throughout my muscles.

3)malaise and mildly flu-like.

4)I have Crohns which is related to the Spondylitis.

5)Every 3-6 months I get excruciating hip pain so that I can not walk.

6)Some days I feel like I can only walk like a 90 year old, I feel like my steps are tentative and shaky.

CAN ANYONE SUGGEST TREATMENT? NSAIDS ARE OFF LIMITS DUE TO THE CROHNS. I AM MISERABLE.
