Ankylosing Spondylitis and Fibromyalgia

Started by dlynn on 12/26/2018 3:18pm

Hello everyone! I was diagnosed with both conditions about 3 years ago. I currently inject Enbrel once a week, along with some other meds, including meds for depression.

Recently I have been feeling shooting pains down my arms and down both sides of my legs. My most recent MRI does not show any changes yet on my upper spine, only my lower spine. Should I discuss this with my doctor? I have to "shake" my arms out a few times a day because of the tingling and my feet are always swollen at the end of the day and I have to massage my hips and feet all the time.

Its hard to tell if my symptoms are from the fibro or the AS, it's very frustrating at times.

Thanks guys!
