I realize this board has been around awhile. I am new to the site, but not to AS. I am married to a man, 75 yr. old, who was diagnosed in his late 20's. We married 25 years ago and his disease was fairly stable. He has been a champion of being active and putting AS on his back burner. However, for the past 3-4 years he has suffered nerve pain in lower extremities along with neuropathy in his feet. Recent MRI showed Arachnoiditis, which explains the severe, unrelenting pain. He has a pain doctor, physical therapy, neurologist, primary care and has an upcoming appointment with neurosurgeon to see if anyone can help with the pain. Anyone out there have this symptom of long standing AS? Pain management has been minimal even with gabapentin, tramadol, nortriptyline for help with sleep. He sleeps every once in awhile at night, but mainly gets little sleep. Quality of life sucks.
