I was diagnosed with AS in 2002, since then i have had no contact with any medical professonals bar my GP for my AS. I have been managing the pain when it gets bad with various Pharmacuticals. I swim, stretch, attend a gym 2/3 times a week and my GP says my general health is very good. I have a good diet and have stopped smoking, I drink alcohol regulary,3/4 days a week. I have a good bed and sleep well in it, 8hrs per night.
As a builder i am on the move all the time during my working day.
I try to keep my posture as it should be.
Friday last week i entered a flare up with levels of pain i havn't experienced before. I have taken Tramacet/Paracetamol for the pain and Indometacin which I think is an antinflamory. Today I feel much better for no apparent reason. My GP can't offer anything more than drugs that don't work well.
Is this as good as it gets for AS sufferers?
Can I do more? Should i be focusing on something? PLS,PLS
