Although it took nearly 10 years and most thought it would be impossible, I finally got off disability a year ago from an unrelated medical condition. I was diagnosed with AS about 5 years ago and have tried several medicines. I am now trying remicade with methotrexate. It has been difficult to work from the beginning. I work in an office setting, but sometimes have to walk far distances for meetings. As you know, sitting for long periods and walking long distances is painful. I don't want to go back on disability. I find that not working is more devastating than AS. Besides drugs, what techniques have you used to decrease the pain at work?
