I don't know how much inflammation I had in my 20's since I was never tested. My symptoms for the most part were not what I would call intense during my 20's.. I did have a few flares that were pretty intense, with sciatica-type pain radiating down my butt and the back of my leg. I would pace the floor when I had a flare because it hurt too much to sit. When I wasn't in a flare my symptoms were a sore back and stiffness in the morning. And my back would freak out if I did too much. Mopping the kitchen was killer.
