Does anyone know if you are more likely to have back spasms when you have AS? Had the worst spasm yesterday, lost consciousness for a few minutes, couldn't move when I came round, and ended up having to be taken to A&E by ambulance. My husband was out so my kids witnessed my fall and managed to get help from neighbours. Poor wee things were a bit traumatised by the whole thing. Sent home later that night with Diazepam and Oromorph to add to my cocktail of drugs. Not sure if this is linked to my AS or if it's just been a really horrible coincidence. Does anyone know? Just when I thought I was on the road to recovery, feels as though I've taken a huge step backwards. So frustrated.
