there was a member that sent me an attachment or this great diagnosing thing for AS and I cannot find it....anyone?

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

Diagnosed with severe Crohn's colitis in May 2005. I deal with daily arthritis ALL over my body, cystic acne, & fibromyaglia. Have taken Imuran, Remicade, TPN, Colozal, Entocort, Flagyl, PamineForte, Cipro, Dicyclomine, Prednisone, Asacol, Prevacid, and the list goes on. Currently being treated with 4000mg of Pentasa daily, 60mg solumedrol, and Remicade.

hey ides is it possible that AS wouldnt show up on an xray but would on a MRI?

also what areas would they normally xray to dx AS??

they only xrayed my shoulder, right wrist, and right and elbow which I thought was funny

cuz I have pain in my right leg, knee, ribs, and spine...its like my PCP didnt even listen to me, I need to get a firm dx on what is causing this pain

I think Ive read on here several times from other members that AS is hard to get dx and the markers dont always show up
