I just saw my orthopedic dr again today and got a steroid injection into my left SI joint for sacroiliitis (GI dr thinks due to Crohn's).  I had the right one injected 1 week ago and it has helped a lot!  Today the dr mentioned that he was afraid I might be in early stages of AS and that if these injections did not work well or for very long he wants to get an MRI done.  Any advice from those of you that have this condition would be greatly appreciated!  It seems like every time I go to the dr they mention some new disease/diagnosis!!!

Hi ALgirl.

You might like to pop over to the rheumatoid arthritis forum and ask this question. The RA mod, a lovely lady called SydneyJo, has both AS and Crohn's, and may be the best person to answer your question.

I know she tends to spend more time on the RA forum than this one, so your best bet for contacting her is to go over to RA and post there.

Hope this helps :-)
