Ankylosing spondylitus - Neck movement and inflamed knees and ankles
I am 31 years old and was diagnosed with AS a few years ago.
I have limited rotation in my neck and have tried everything except a witch doctor to improve the movement, could anyone suggest anything that worked for them or heard works?
Also I have been in a fair amount of pain throughout my body for a few years and in order to keep my job I have avoided any treatment. I have a young family and we are reliant on my job so I had to put that before my health. However it's got to the stage where I have had to start taking sulphasalazine to see if it helps, as I can no longer function without some sort of treatment. My knees and ankles are quite sore and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions to reduce inflammation/pain in these areas? Will sulphasalazine help with this? I have been taking the tablets for a few weeks now.
Would really appreciate any help.
