I was diagnosed with AS a year ago, luckly it was caught early enough that my symptoms are only mild in my hip joints and now that I take Humira, Aleave and work out regularly that I will for the most part be fine till I get old and grey.

I can tell you this, there is a small chance that if you have AS and recieve an Anthrax vaccine that it can aggrevat AS and or Arthritis and cause a flare up. I have read that many places. Not everyone will have this problem, unfortunatly I have not been deployed yet, I want to be but won't and I guess thats a good thing since I won't have to take that chance with the vaccine.
