I have read your response on the forum - taken in context you seem approximate my same condition. I was diagnosed with AS 22 years ago, I am 49 years old - condition is classic in terms of remission and excitation. Currently in an active state and have been for the past 3 months. Have had two corrective surgeries, successful, with more on the way. Please respond - would like to discuss secondary symptoms with you. Thank you and will be awaiting your reply.
