Has anyone been tested for the antigen HLA-B27? I am just wondering if it is common in fibro? Also if anyone has pain down inside and outside of thighs you can follow with you finger in a straight line? Not scatica pain. Thats the only wasy I can describe it. Burns and feels like skin is sunburnt.

Hi there,
I was tested for it last year.  It's to see if you have Anklosing Spondylitis. Best to Google it. I'd try to explain it, but it's complex shocked
The pain you mention in your legs is something I have for sure.  You described it perfectly.  All Fibro.  Isn't it a treat....

I'm positive, but they did an x-ray and I don't have Ankolosing Spondolitis. It's actually petty common to test positive for it in the general population.
