Hey there Oakie!!
Welcome to the forum!!! You've found the best place to find support and learn more about fibro.. sounds like you've had a lot of experience with it already.
I have never heard of ankylosing spondylosis so I looked it up. No one that I know of on the forum has it .. but I can't be sure of that.
I do have experience with many of your other problems, though. Plantar fascitis, which I was told is like carpel tunnel of the feet. I have that and it's awful. If you sit or stand for too long it really hurts. My feet and toes cramp up all of the time. My son has it too. Main thing you can do for it is insoles.. but you know that.
A lot of our members share many of your problems.. most of them sound like they're fibro related. I wish we had something that could really make us feel better.. but alas.. there's not much. Lots of meds, some natural things (mentioned on fibro 101), stretches and gentle exercise seem to be about the only things that the medical industry has come up with so far.
Anyway.. glad you found us!! I hope you'll continue to post and join us often!!
