Good morning Rev and welcome bacfk to Healing Well. wondered where you had slipped off to,lol. Sure hate to hear you are doing so poorly.
Cannot remember but wanted to ask, have you ever tried Humira for the AS? I have a very dear friend afflicted with AS was almost bed ridden. He started on Humira and what a difference it has made in his life. He is an atty friend of mine that I have known since he was a small boy and he is back being a lawyer again thanks to Humira. I am on Humira for my crohns and so far its helped more than any of the heavy hitters I have tried. It is so dang expensive thats the big kicker. The company does have several assistance programs available too.
Oh yes, climate can wreak havoc on the body like none other. The hot dryer air is the best by far. I know when its going to rain before the meterorologists does. When the barometer starts going nuts so does my body. Arthritis is affected by weather changes too you know.
Please keep posting and let us know how you are coming along.

Nice to see you Reverend...Where at in the south are you moving to? I live in Nashville, Tn and the weather here is not very predictable, especially in Mt. Juliet, where I live. We have the worst winds, and the rain.....is awful. Since I've been told I have arthritis in my knee I can really see a difference when the weather changes.
