Hey guys..this is my third post here trying to get "real" information about AS from people who live with it everyday as it seems difficult to find anything on the web that matches ALL of my symptoms. I have only been to the rheumatologist once (last week) and am going back in two weeks when results of more blood tests are in...but I expect that the blood work will come back negative as everything else has! Short and sweet: do guys with AS ever have urinary symptoms (mild burning at the tip of my prnis, urgency, feeling that I have to go shortly after I have just been)? My prostate is not enlarged so its not that. Tests for chlamydia and gonnorhea are negative.

I don't know if they are symptoms of AS, but sometimes when I urinate I do feel a mild burning. Ocassionaly I have days when I have to go all the time, but not normally. I been noticing that I wake up and have to go to the bathroom, but I normally wake up due to AS. I hope you get the answers you are looking for, and please let us know what you find out. I found out that since I've been going to the Doctor that when I go I often here from them something like this "I've never heard of that, but...". Hang in there and don't get frustrated. We are all in this same boat together in one way or another. Bobby

how about blisters on soles of feet? is that symptom limited to ReA or does it overlap with AS or PsA?

I have never heard of any blisters with AS. It sounds more like RA (or maybe something like Behçet's), but I am not sure.


DXed with AS almost 40 years ago

Hi,
When I was first diagnosed with AS in my 20's, that was one of the kickers. A doctor described it as 'pissing razor blades'. It went away, and never came back...so yes, it can be part of the package, and no, it doesn't have to be what the rest of your life feels like. Good luck.

Quick edit to say I think that blister thing came up as well, but nobody ever associated it with the AS. It went away, too.

RichardE are you still getting burning when urinating? I agree with Spencer when he says it sounds like reactive arthritis. One thing to be aware of, though, as you have tested negative for STD's is to keep an eye out for your flow reducing.

For years after my hip replacement surgery I had urinary issues but always tested negatives for STDs and UTIs. Later it turned out I had a urethral stricture (a narrowing) but as it had been narrowing slowly I hadnt really noticed the reduction in my stream. When I ended up getting very constipated (morphine!) I ended up going into urinary retention which is a life threatening situation and I will never forget the pain of that. It certainly redefined my pain scale I can tell ya LOL I spent 5 days in hospital and then had surgery a month later.

Keep a close watch on things and I hope your urinary symptoms have improved.

I ordered my research paper on https://www.bestcustomwriting.com/coursework , my first experience with this website. To say that I'm satisfied is to say nothing. I got a paper complying with all requirements and got an A.
